Police Detonate Toy




MOSCOW -- Police carried out a controlled explosion on a suspect package found Friday in a street near the Kremlin, but it turned out to be a box containing a toy, the Interior Ministry and local news agencies said.


Security has been tightened in Moscow and other cities because of increased tension in Russia's turbulent Dagestan region, where troops are trying to drive out Chechen-backed rebels.
