Coordinated attacks on police in Chechnya kill one officer

ISIS claims responsibility for attack on policemen in Chechnya

Police in the North Caucasus region said in another incident two men armed with knives attempted to enter the district police department in the town of Shali and "inflicted wounds on two police employees on duty" before being shot dead.

Later on Monday, Islamic State did claim responsibility for the three attacks in Chechnya through its "news agency" Amaq. They were both killed when police opened fire. Two police officers and a bystander were reportedly injured. The attack was claimed by an Islamist group.

Mr Kadyrov also said that the situation in Chechen republic is "calm and stabile".

"These attacks appear not to have been particularly sophisticated or effective", he said.

All of those involved in the attacks were minors, with the "eldest among them being 16 years old... and the youngest being 11", Chechnya's National Policy Minister Dzhambulat Umarov told Tass.

According to unconfirmed reports by the Telegram channel Mash, there were also attacks in Grozny, where a militant was shot after hitting a traffic policeman with his auto, and officers and militants shot at each other at the intersection between Pervyomaiskaya and Isaev streets, possibly killing one officer. The attack injured several policemen, but the attacker survived and was taken to a hospital.

The Chechen leader also dismissed the attacks as an attempt to disrupt the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Adha, saying, "The task was to darken this holiday, to cause a broad public response, and to prevent residents of Chechnya from celebrating Eid al-Adha". He said the two were shot dead by police. A suicide bomber attacked traffic officers in Shalinsky's Mesker-Yurt village but failed to kill anyone, including himself, the Latvian-based news website Meduza reported.

Mr Kadyrov, a 41-year-old former separatist fighter who went over to the Kremlin in 2000, has ruled Chechnya since 2005 and is known to be a bitter enemy of Isis and other radical groups in the Middle East.
