Four people were killed and ten injured by terrorists in Chechnya who had ambushed an interior troops convoy on a mountain road.
The attack occurred Sunday in the Vedeno region in Chechnya's southern mountains, said Magomed Deniyev, a spokesman for Chechnya's branch of Russia's Interior Ministry. The attackers fled.
Large-scale battles in Chechnya ended years ago, but terrorists continue to mount regular hit-and-run raids against federal troops and local Moscow-backed authorities.
