At Least Six Killed in Gun Attack on Chechen Parliament

Tuesday, October 19, 2010

In the latest chapter in a long history of violence in Chechnya, militants broke into the Chechen Parliament in Grozny this morning gunning down at least six people and wounding more than a dozen others. Two of the attackers were reported to be suicide bombers. This attack, like others, is thought to be a challenge to the authority of Ramzan Kadyrov, Chechnya's leader. Michael Schwirtz, Moscow correspondent for The New York Times, has been following the story and joins the program with the latest.
