Suspected insurgents clashed with police in Chechnya, killing two law enforcement officers, a regional official said Saturday.

A group of about 25 suspected insurgents fought with government forces late Friday in Chechnya's southern district of Urus-Martan, a regional Interior Ministry official said.

One police officer and a soldier were killed, and one officer was wounded, the official said. At least four insurgents were wounded, he said on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media.

However, the insurgents-linked Web site Kavkaz Center claimed that at least nine law enforcement officers were killed in a gunfight that lasted for four hours.
