One police officer was killed on Sunday when a bomb exploded during a special operation in Russia's volatile southern republic of Chechnya, local police said.

Two soldiers were injured in the attack in the mountainous Urus-Martan district, around 20 kilometers south-west of the Chechen capital Grozny.
