A Chechen suicide truck bomber destroyed a Russian military hospital in Mozdok, North Ossetia (just across the border from Chechnya.) There were 150 people in the hospital (100 of them Russian soldiers who were patients, the rest staff). The hospital building collapsed due to the force of the explosion. Mozdok is a major military base for supporting operations in Chechnya.
In Chechnya, rebel action left four soldiers, three Chechen policemen and 17 rebels dead.
