3 Chechens Killed in Istanbul

ANKARA, Turkey — Three Chechens were gunned down on a street in Istanbul, Turkey's state-run news agency said.

They were killed on Friday while sitting at a park by shots fired from a car that sped away, Anatolia reported.

At least three other Chechens have been killed in Turkey since 2008.

Chechen groups have blamed Russian intelligence for the killings, although police suspect that at least one death was linked to a dispute among Chechens over the distribution of aid.
