A Russian officer was killed in an explosion in central Chechnya's
A Russian officer was killed in an explosion in central Chechnya's Urus-Martan district, a local police spokesman said on Thursday.

The blast occurred on Wednesday as troops conducted a search of a forest. The explosive device contained the equivalent of 1 kilogram of TNT.

The group commander received fatal wounds in the explosion and died at the scene, the spokesman said.

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