A police officer was shot dead in the Vedeno District
A police officer was shot dead in the Vedeno District of Chechnya, Russia's North Caucasus republic, a police source said on Sunday.

An unidentified assailant fired several shots at the police officer at approximately 1.00 a.m. Moscow time (9.00 p.m. GMT). He died on the way to hospital.

An investigation is underway.

Chechnya suffered two devastating separatist wars in the 1990s-early 2000s. Thousands were killed and many more made homeless as federal troops attempted to regain control over the mountainous republic.

Although the active phase of the war is over, sporadic clashes with militants and terrorist attacks are common in the troubled republic, as well as in adjacent republics such as Ingushetia and Daghestan.
