    GROZNY, January 12 (RIA Novosti) - The shelling of the Emergency Situations Ministry building in Grozny can be result of inattentive handling of weapons, Head of Information Department of the Republic's Interior Ministry Ruslan Atsayev told RIA Novosti.

    "The operative-investigative group is working at the scene of the incident. The main version is negligence when handling weapons. The territory is highly protected, therefore the version concerning the terrorist attack is of small possibility," Atsayev said. The investigation considers all versions of the incident, the Chechen Prosecutor's Office told RIA Novosti.

    Government buildings were shelled on Monday morning. This was disclosed to RIA Novosti in the Chechen Presidential press-service. "Today at 10:45am unknown persons fired twice from an under-barrel grenade launcher in the direction of government buildings," a source in the press-service said.

    According to him, the explosions occurred on the territory of the Chechen Emergencies Ministry. Two workers of the Ministry were injured. They were hospitalized.
