Chechen ambush kills seven police

Seven Russian police officers have been killed in an ambush in Chechnya.

The Russian interior ministry said the attack happened near Kurchaloi, south-east of the capital, Grozny.

The men's vehicle came under fire from a grenade launcher. The driver survived and is being treated for shrapnel wounds.

Raids by Chechen separatist rebels remain frequent in the North Caucasus republic, which has been devastated by a decade of war.

The seven officers killed in the attack were all from the Tver region of central Russia.

The local Chechen prosecutor's office told a Russian news agency it was the worst attack in recent months.
