Chechen Rebel Leader Slain, Russia Says
Chechen warlord Shamil Basayev died in Ingushetia when a dynamite-laden truck exploded in his convoy, according to Russian officials.
Basayev was held responsible for a large number of terrorist attacks in Russia, including a 2004 school hostage taking that left 331 dead.
