    GROZNY, JANUARY 9, RIA NOVOSTI - A disastrous landslide swept Zandak, a village in the Nozhai Yurt district, Chechnya. A state of emergency was introduced in the locality, and an emergency HQ established.

Ten homeless families are putting up at the village school, and 250 villagers have left the place to seek refuge in kinsmen's homes.
