Gantamirov in Hospital

MOSCOW -- Bislan Gantamirov, who was released from jail last year and put in charge of a pro-Moscow Chechen militia, has been hospitalized, Interfax reported Friday.

Gantamirov's press service did not disclose the reason for the hospitalization, but said he is likely to be transferred to Moscow soon, suggesting that he could be seriously wounded.
