Nalchik, Kabardino-Balkaria, RUSSIA

Russian troops storm a building containing Chechen-backed gunmen, who had suffered heavy losses one day earlier when they launched an attack on Nalchik and sparked fighting in which at least 86 people were killed. The militants, all local men, were from Yarmuk, a North Caucasus Islamic extremist organisation, and were backed by Chechen warlord Shamil Basayev. Political and religious repression in the republic of Kabardino-Balkaria and the continuing war in Chechnya has led to a rise in fundamentalism.
