    A suicide bomber has killed five police officers and injured several more in a reported attempt to attack a concert hall in the Russian region of Chechnya.
    The attack happened outside of a concert hall in the capital Grozny on Sunday, as thousands of people were gathering in advance of celebrations for a local holiday.
    Local officials said the bomber killed five policemen and wounded 12 others as the city celebrated the birthday of Chechnya's pro-Kremlin leader Ramzan Kadyrov.
    The Investigative Committee, Russia's leading federal investigative agency, also said that five policemen were killed and 12 others wounded. No civilians were reported injured in the attack.
    The attacker was believed to be a 19-year-old resident of Chechnya, the agency said in a statement.
    The bomber triggered the explosives after police tried to inspect the man's identity papers, a Russian Interior Ministry said.
    "Police officers who were manning metal detectors at the entrance of the concert hall noticed a suspicious young man. When the police officers decided to check the individual, the man blew himself up," a local police officer told the RIA news agency.
    Al Jazeera cannot independently verify the authenticity of the official version of the incident.
    The Tri-City Herald daily newspaper quoted Kadyrov as saying that the suicide bomber was wearing a police uniform and presented police identification when he tried to go through metal detectors set up outside the concert hall.
    When police moved to stop him, he detonated the explosives, Kadyrov said.
    Several ambulances were seen leaving the site, which was blocked off by police.

    Six gunmen, three police killed in Russia's Chechnya, leader says

    MOSCOW (Reuters) - At least six gunmen and three policemen were killed in gun battles in which a building was stormed in the Chechen capital Grozny on Thursday, the leader of the turbulent southern Russian region said.


    The attack, before Russian President Vladimir Putin was due to deliver his annual state of the union address in Moscow, underlines the fragile security situation in Chechnya more than a decade after he sent troops to quell separatists there.


    Chechnya's Kremlin-backed leader, Ramzan Kadyrov, wrote on his Instagramm account that "six terrorists were annihilated" after they opened fire at a police patrol car, killing three officers, and then stormed offices housing local media.


    A spokesman for the Russian Interior Ministry in Moscow said an unspecified operation was still under way in Grozny, but gave no other details.


    Russia's Tass news agency quoted Kadyrov as saying several gunmen remained holed up at a school in the city center. It was not clear whether any hostages had been taken.


    A video posted on YouTube showed what appeared to be footage of the clashes. It suggested the attackers had entered Grozny in an act of "retaliation" for what it called the oppression of Muslim women.


    Kadyrov keeps a firm grip on Chechnya after separatist wars there in 1994-96 and 1999-2000, but an Islamist insurgency has spread across the predominantly Muslim North Caucasus, fueled by a mixture of religious fervor and anger over corruption and alleged rights abuses.


    In October, five policemen were killed and 12 were injured in Grozny when a suicide bomber detonated his explosive device when officers approached him asking for identification papers.
