      Chechens Afraid to Return, Group Says


      MOSCOW -- The vast majority of refugees who have fled fighting in the
      Russian breakaway republic of Chechnya are too scared to return home,
      according to a survey by an international aid group.

      The findings of the survey, conducted by Doctors Without Borders,
      challenge statements by officials in Moscow, who say Chechnya is
      returning to normal and that the decade-long military campaign
      against separatist rebels has succeeded. They have trumpeted the
      return of refugees as proof.

      "It is obvious that people have been returning to Chechnya against
      their will, giving up under tremendous pressure and without other
      choice," the aid group said.
