Grozny, June 24 (RFE/RL) -- One Russian serviceman
has been killed and two others wounded in Grozny -- hours before
peace talks are due to resume in Grozny's Khankala suburb.
Our Moscow correspondent reports that the casualties occurred last
night when Chechen separatist fighters attacked a Russian convoy.
There has been no word on Chechen casualties.
Today's talks in Grozny will find negotiators trying to resolve the
details of implementing a June 10 military accord on withdrawing
russian troops and disarming separatist fighters.
A separatist spokesman said no progress was made at the most recent
talks on Saturday.
