- Story Text: Staff at a makeshift hospital near the besieged village of Pervomaiskoye treated several Russian soldiers and policemen on Thursday (January 18) who were wounded when Chechen fighters tried to rescue comrades trapped in the village.
Tass, quoting the regional interior ministry, said fighters from Chechnya had tried to break through an "outer ring" of Russian troops at Sovietskoye, about three km (two miles) from the siege village, at about 4 a.m. (0100 GMT).
Eyewitnesses from Sovietskoye said the rebels entered settlement from the south and clashed with Russian troops during the night. They later fled.
At least three policemen were killed and several Russian soldiers were wounded.
Two Dagestani policemen and a Russian Interior Ministry officer were among those admitted to the hospital in Aksai, 10 kilometres (six miles) from Pervomaiskoye.
