Three Russian servicemen were killed when unknown assailants opened fire on their car in war-torn Chechnya, the Interfax news agency reported on Wednesday, quoting army officials.

"The car towing a water cistern came under fire from unknown attackers, apparently from an abandoned house on the village's outskirts. A sergeant and two soldiers died of their wounds," the agency quoted an unnamed official as saying, referring to the village of Bamut.

Last week Russia announced the end of a 10-year security regime in Chechnya, claiming stability had returned to the territory following two wars there in the post-Soviet era that claimed tens of thousands of lives.
