Aug. 20 (UPI) -- A police officer died in a series of at least four coordinated attacks on police in Russia's volatile Chechnya region on Monday.
A shootout between police and assailants on a street in the capital of Grozny led to the death of the police officer. In another clash, a man was shot after he struck a traffic officer with his car. Between the two attacks, five police officers and two bystanders were injured. Security camera footage from the second encounter showed a vehicle running over men in uniform.
