A policeman and three federal troops were wounded after a clash
A policeman and three federal troops were wounded after a clash with militants in the Republic of Chechnya in Russia's troubled North Caucasus Region, a local police source said on Sunday.

Combat engagement with a group of about 15 militants occurred in a forest near the village of Tangi in the Urus-Martan district in central Chechnya on Saturday during a search operation carried out by police and federal troops, the police source said.

Large-scale conflicts between federal troops and separatists are over in Chechnya, but militants continue to stage regular attacks on federal troops and Kremlin-backed police and authorities.

The neighboring regions in Russia's volatile North Caucasus have also been plagued by sporadic militant attacks.
