A day before in the Vosmogo marta street Russian army engineers discovered and defused an anti-tank landmine. The engineer corps inspect roads used by federal army convoys every day. During these inspections not a single civilian car is permitted to drive around, under the penalty of destruction and shooting of its passengers.
On January 22 two residents of the Mesker-yurt village disappeared after being detained during an identification check carried out in the village. One of them was a 10th-grade student returning home from school and the other was his neighbour, a young man named Doutkhanov.
Several days earlier another local resident had been detained under the same circumstances. Two days later his dismembered body was discovered in a field near the village of Tsotsin-yurt.
The remains of three blown-up bodies were found on January 19 near a pond in the Kulary settlement in the Achkhoi-Martan district. According to local inhabitants, the remains of human bodies had been strewn over an area 150-200 metres in diameter. Identifying them would have been hardly possible. The remains of the unknown bodies were buried at the local cemetery. (D/T)
