Four Russian servicemen were killed and seven wounded after a bomb hit their infantry combat vehicle in the restive North Caucasus republic of Chechnya, Russia's Interior Ministry said in a statement on Thursday.

The group was carrying out engineering reconnaissance near Yandi village, some 45 km (28 miles) south-east of the regional capital Grozny, when their vehicle was blown up by a concealed explosive device, the statement said.

The leader of the North Caucasus resistance Doku Umarov was reported dead last month by a website sympathising with the fighters, marking a success for President Vladimir Putin in his attempts to end the violent struggle against Russian rule.
