December 19, 2006 -- Chechen Prime Minister Ramzan Kadyrov is inviting tourists to his war-wrecked republic.
Kadyrov says his government is looking into a variety of projects to rebuild the republic's tourist infrastructure, including building a tourist hotel in Grozny and sporting grounds and camping sites across the region.
Chechnya has been plagued by more than a decade of separatist conflict, and although major fighting has died down, rebels still regularly attack Russian forces.
