A police officer was wounded in Russia's volatile republic of Chechnya,
A police officer was wounded in Russia's volatile republic of Chechnya, when an unidentified explosive device went off under his car, local police said on Wednesday.

The incident occurred late on Tuesday in the Urus Martan district, southwest of Chechnya's capital Grozny. The officer was hospitalized, police said.

Fighting has largely subsided in Chechnya, the venue of two anti-separatist wars led by the Kremlin, but the region has remained unstable with militants staging attacks on troops and local authorities.

Police also said a cache with more than 150 artillery shells was discovered in woods in the Kurchaloi district, to the east of Grozny, on Tuesday.
