    There is a report (in The Times: “Russian secret squad killed Red Cross staff in Chechnya” that the killing of six Red Cross workers in Chechnya in December 1996 at Novye Atagi was by the FSB. This comes from Major Aleksi Potyomkin, one of those involved who is hiding with his family in Germany trying to defect.

    Apparently the group was on a search and destroy mission looking for particular chechens when they spotted a rebel group very near the Red Cross center (with no red crosses on it apparently) and stormed in mob handed. Quelle cockup.
