Moscow - Four policemen were killed and five people wounded on Tuesday in a suicide attack in Chechnya's capital Grozny during celebrations of the end of Ramadan, a police source told RIA news agency.

RIA quoted an unidentified police official as saying that a man detonated an explosive device when a police patrol attempted to detain him. A second explosion occurred shortly afterward.

The source told RIA three of the five wounded were also police.

"The bandits have shown their real face which only proves that this evil should be eradicated," Chechnya's Moscow-backed leader Ramzan Kadyrov was quoted by RIA as saying.
