Grozny: Police in Chechnya say a
raid on a Grozny apartment building left three militants dead, while three officers were wounded in an exchange of gunfire.

Police spokesman Magomed Deniyev said Tuesday the
militants wore explosive belts but were killed by police gunfire. A policeman on the scene, however, said one of the militants blew himself up rather than surrender to police.

The spokesman said the police raided the apartment in
the Chechen capital after receiving information that the
militants were hiding inside.

Large-scale battles are now rare in Chechnya, but an
Islamic insurgency persists and has spread throughout the
Caucasus region of southern Russia.
