    GROZNY, August 18 (RIA Novosti) - Local Interior Ministry units have been chasing Chechen militants in the western part of Russia's breakaway republic, a spokesman for the ministry said Thursday.

    Shamil Kutsayev said the forces were running in two directions, chasing a group of 15 militants, which has been temporarily located Wednesday just before they divided into two groups in order to escape.

    The first group is heading towards the village of Bamut. The second is moving along the Sunzhen pass, 10km from the village of Sernovodsk near the Chechen-Ingush border, Kutsayev said. He said one of the militants had been detained.

    None of the ministry's servicemen were harmed, he said.
