Chechen rock festival delayed for security reasons

GROZNY. July 4 (Interfax) - The Phoenix: Revival of Life rock
festival in Gudermes has been delayed for security reasons, the head of
the regional federal headquarters, Deputy Interior Minister Col. Gen.
Arkady Yedelev, told Interfax on Monday.
"We and the republican government decided that it would be
inexpedient to hold the rock festival in Gudermes on July 5," he said.
The festival may take place in September, but the date will depend
on the situation in Chechnya, he said.
Chechen Prime Minister Sergei Abramov announced the delay on Monday
morning. Law enforcement agencies insisted on it, as "the situation on
the administrative border is extremely difficult," he said.
