Russia: September 15, 2000


 Russian appointed Chechen officials in Chechnya warned that Russian troops would have to operate more carefully around civilians if they wanted to avoid increasing unrest. For example, nervous troops at a checkpoint opened fire on a car full of civilians, killing three and wounding two. Engineers destroying wrecked houses in Grozny do not always check with local residents, and injuries have resulted. In the far east, a navy warship holding gunnery exercises hit a local village, causing some damage and one injury.
