Grozny Ambush

NAZRAN, Ingushetia — Three soldiers were killed in Grozny when rebels ambushed their armored personnel carrier, crippling it with an explosion and bombarding it with grenades, officials said Wednesday.

The ambush was one of three separate rebel attacks Tuesday that killed four soldiers and wounded eight others, said an official in the pro-Moscow administration in Chechnya. The two other attacks were in the southeastern Shatoi district, where one serviceman was killed and one was wounded, and the southern Vedeno Gorge, where three were wounded.

Interfax, citing police in Chechnya, said three more soldiers were killed and three injured, when their armored vehicle ran over an explosive in the Kurchaloi region in the south of Chechnya.
