29 January 2005 -- A Russian report says nine servicemen have been killed by land-mine explosions in the war-torn republic of Chechnya.

ITAR-TASS quoted a police source as saying the Chechen Interior Ministry soldiers were traveling yesterday on the Caucasus federal highway near the village of Alkhan-Yurt when their two vehicles were hit by land mines detonated by remote control.
