At least six people were killed when insurgents stormed the parliament complex in the capital of Russia's troubled Chechnya region today, security forces say. Three attackers, including one suicide bomber, are believed to be among the dead, AP reports. Two police officers and a parliamentary official were also killed before the assault was over. One attacker blew himself up at the gates of the complex while two others stormed the building shouting "Allahu Akbar," said a Chechen police spokesman. (Read more Chechnya stories.)
