Chechen separatist fighters ride atop an armored personnel carrier in Grozny heading toward front line positions against Russian forces on Saturday, Jan. 7, 1995. The fighters were chanting "Allah Akbar" (God is Great) as they head towards an area of heavy fighting. Russian shells and rockets rained down on Saturday on Grozny, capital of rebel Chechnya, setting the presidential palace ablaze. The assault came a day after President Boris Yeltsin's Security Council pledged to smash the Chechen rebellion. (AP Photo/Anatoly Maltsev)
