Female suicide bomber in Grozny

A suicide attack in Grozny has injured six police officers. The female attacker detonated herself when approached by two policemen on the main street (renamed Putin Street – that must rankle somewhat) in the capital. This is the latest in a string of attacks by Chechen militants in the region, as referred to in this earlier post. It appears that a new suicide bombing campaign is underway in Russia. It remains to be seen if the attacks will remain localized within the Chechen and Ingush regions or whether the campaign will spread to Moscow, as with a series of earlier attacks on the Moscow Metro, airliners and trains.
