A militant has been killed in a clash with servicemen
A militant has been killed in a clash with servicemen in central Chechnya, a law enforcement source in the North Caucasus republic said Friday.

The source said over the phone that a shootout with six militants took place in an area of forest 2 km away from Shalazhi village in the Urus-Martan district. The five remaining militants managed to escape.

The dead man was a resident of Grozny, the republic's capital. No casualties have been reported among the troops.

Sporadic terrorist attacks and militant clashes remain common in Russia's North Caucasus republics, although the active phase of the military campaign in Chechnya officially ended several years ago.

A blast overnight in the neighboring republic of Ingushetia damaged a shop, although no casualties were reported. It was the third explosion in Ingushetia in the past seven days.
