Chechens in tribute to Red Cross victims

Scores of Chechens dressed in black gathered outside the Red Cross compound near Grozny yesterday, a day of official mourning for the six agency workers murdered by gunmen in Chechnya.

And with the separatist republic still reeling from the brutal attack, there was a second mass slaying when six Russian residents of Grozny, were gunned down in their homes. A pounds 60,000 reward has been offered for information leading to the killers' arrest. Grozny - AP
