Masked men, some wielding hammers, stormed the offices of the Committee Against Torture in Chechnya during a protest denouncing its work, the human rights organisation said. The group tweeted that its headquarters in Grozny, the capital of the region in southern Russia, had been damaged and police had not responded to calls for help. It said its offices have been raided in the past and its representatives beaten. [1]

Chechnya is a Country with a very repressive regime. The Cnechens have suffered badly from War and Russian domination. [2]
