Triple bombing kills police in Chechnya

A triple suicide bomb attack has killed six police officers and two other people in the Chechen capital Grozny where Muslims were celebrating Eid, according to the BBC. A further 22 people were injured, five of them seriously, in the bombing late on Tuesday, Russian prosecutors said. It appears the bombers used the first blast to lure police to the scene before setting off other explosives. Russian prosecutors released a statement naming two of the attackers as young Chechen men, aged 22 and 21. No militant group said it had ordered the attacks.
