Two militants have been killed in a shoot-out with Interior servicemen in Grozny. The Russian Interior Ministry reported on Thursday that last morning a radio-controlled land mine went off the moment an Ural truck and an armoured personnel carrier with Interior servicemen on board went down a motor road in a Grozny district. The servicemen immediately came under gunfire. Two bandits were killed in a shoot-out that followed. The killed turned out to be unemployed local residents aged 27 and 20. A Makarov pistol was found with one of them. No servicemen were injured.
