Chechnya rights defenders face intimidation

Human rights activists in the Russian region say they are suffering a campaign of fear and intimidation.

    It has been five years since Chechnya declared its long decades of war officially over. A week and a half ago, however, it suffered its worst armed attacks in recent years.

    Tensions have been rising between the troubled Russian republic's authorities and human-rights campaigners, who claim they are suffering a campaign of fear and intimidation,.
