An arms and ammunition cache, which also contained terrorist equipment, was found in Grozny, the capital of Chechnya. According to police, it was installed in a room of an abandoned detached house and camouflaged with construction debris.
The cache contained a machine gun, a sniper rifle, and an antitank rocket-launcher along with two artillery shells and seven home-made explosive devices. Apart from that, terrorists hid 20 electric fuses for home-made mines, a radio, two night vision devices, and 10 sets of combat fatigues. The terrorists' "warehouse" also contained 13 masks and even 5 women's wigs, which the terrorists apparently used for disguise.
According to Russian police, the cache was detected thanks to locals.
