Rebels mount attack on Chechen parliament
Chechnya's rejuvenated Islamist movement launched an attack on the parliament buildings in the region's capital, Grozny, on Tuesday. One suicide bomber blew himself up outside, but his two accomplices penetrated the building before detonating their devices. The attack shows that the insurgents' capability - and daring - to mount attacks on high-profile targets is on the increase.
