Unconfirmed Reports of Caucasus Emirates Terrorists Seizing Press House in Grozny

3 Policemen Killed in Grozny Shoot-Out
Statement from Caucasus Emirate Terrorists from Grozny

A Russian-language Muslim blogger on Twitter claims to have information about the gunmen who are in the Press House, and that they are from the terrorist group called Caucasus Emirates.

We have not confirmed any of these reports.

Translation by The Interpreter:

Translation: Burning car of officers in Grozny.

Translation: Roads are blocked.

The next tweets are evidently a translation from Chechen into Russian of the audio statements from a video. We have seen identical texts on the Russian social network VKontakte but the video has been removed.

Translation: A mujahideen is describing their results, operation intikam revenge for Muslim sisters in Grozny.

Intikam is a Turkic word for "revenge."

Translation: 2 - he also said that they are mujahideen of the Caucasus Emirate, the operation is under Amir Khamzat.

Translation: 3 - many trophies and means of transport, not only in the Center, but we are in Staropromyslovsky and Chernorechye.

By "trophies," he means the automobiles have been seized.

Translation: 4) We have come here until death to kill the enemies of Muslims and we will stand to the end.

Translation: How about that, the tank is banging on the Press House just like in 1996.

The year 1996 was the start of the first Chechen war.
