Two policemen were wounded in a blast in the capital of Russia's troubled North Caucasus Republic of Chechnya, a local police source said on Sunday.

GROZNY, May 31 (RIA Novosti) - Two policemen were wounded in a blast in the capital of Russia's troubled North Caucasus Republic of Chechnya, a local police source said on Sunday.

The policemen were wounded early on Saturday while on patrol in Grozny when a home-made bomb planted in a lawn exploded. Both policemen were hospitalized, the police source said.

"The bomb was equivalent to about 200 grams of TNT," the source said.

Militant attacks and clashes remain common in Russia's North Caucasus although the Kremlin campaign to fight separatists and terrorists in Chechnya has officially ended. Violence often spills over into nearby republics, in particular Ingushetia and Daghestan.
