Explosion in Chechnya kills 1, wounds 7

In Chechnya, one person was killed and seven wounded when their tractor drove over a radio-controlled landmine, the Chechen Interior Ministry reported on Thursday.

The blast victims were local peasants, who were returning from the fields in a tractor-trailer. The incident took place in a country-track outside Assinovskaya Stanitsa, Chechnya's Sunzha district.

"Seven people were taken to a hospital in Ingushetia with severe injuries, and one woman, Roza Adayeva, died," said the agency's source.

Fragments of an explosive device and a Kenwood radio set were discovered on the site of the incident.
