Military helicopter fired at in Chechnya

A military helicopter was fired at in Chechnya near the Dargo settlement of the Vedeno district Tuesday morning, said a source in the Joint Group of Forces in the North Caucasus.

In his words, unidentified people fired at a landing Mi-8 helicopter with the Russian defense ministry's assault combat group on board from automatic weapons. Four servicemen were wounded and hospitalized. Minor damage was done to the helicopter.

The Regional Operational Staff for controlling the anti-terrorist operation in the North Caucasus told RIA Novosti that the federal forces killed four militants near Dargo.

Mi-24 combat helicopters bombed the bandits and killed them, said a staff representative. He said army intelligence people discovered the remains of four militants on the site later.

A large-scale special operation to reveal and kill bandits was underway in the Vedeno district on Tuesday, said the staff.
