GROZNY, August 31 (Itar-Tass) — According to the latest data, the blasts that occurred in Grozny on Tuesday night killed five policemen, one member of Emergency Ministry personnel, and one civilian. Eighteen people -- policemen and civilians -- were wounded, said a source in Chechnya's law enforcement agencies.
The first blast occurred on Tuesday night, at about 21:45 on Bogdan Khmelnitsky Street in Leninsky District. The street leads to Grozny airport. "A militant set off the bomb when police were trying to apprehend him," the source said.
About one hour later, a second bomb blast was set off in the crowd in the same place by a suicide bomber, a spokesman for the Chechen Interior Ministry said. The site of the incidents was cordoned off by police. Investigating groups and operatives have been at work there.
Head of the Republic Ramzan Kadyrov has already held a special conference, during which he ordered taking exhaustive measures to arrange a funeral of those killed and give welfare assistance to the families of the victims, and provide those wounded with a high-class medical treatment.
Kadyrov emphasized in a talk to journalists, "Those who sent the bandits and those who set off the bomb lack anything sacred either in religion or nationality". He said the bombing incident is indicative of the need to wage tough struggle against bandits.
Kadyrov pointed out that police personnel, sacrificing their lives, had frustrated the bandits' plans that could have inflicted heavy casualties among the population.
