Moscow police seize arms smuggled from Chechnya

Police have seized a cache of weapons south of Moscow. The arms were discovered when officers stopped and searched four vehicles heading for the capital.

Several guns were found, including one which had previously been reported stolen. Police also seized shells and cartridges.

Officers suspect the arms were stolen from a military unit in Russia’s Chechen Republic.
