Chechnya building in flames after militants attack

Footage shows a publishing house in the Chechen capital Grozny in flames after militants stormed the multi-storey building.

The heavily-armed gunmen killed several traffic police officers who had tried to stop the militants' cars.

Separatists in Chechnya have fought two wars with Russian forces since the break-up of the Soviet Union in 1991.
