Chechen Capitol Attack Leaves Six Dead

At least six people are dead after a shooting at a Russian parliamentary building.

The four insurgents who stormed the Chechen Parliment complex are all dead along with two security guards, after officials say one insurgent blew himself up.

The attack happened in Grozny, the provincial capital.

The region has been battling an Islamist insurgency for years despite the iron rule of its Moscow-backed president.
