Kremlin requests right to hunt terrorists abroad
Bush started it.
MOSCOW, July 4 (Reuters) - Russia's President Vladimir Putin asked parliament on Tuesday for the right to send soldiers and special forces anywhere in the world to fight terrorists.
His request to the Federation Council (upper house of parliament) came nine days after militants killed four Russian hostages they had taken in Iraq.
Russian security services last week offered a $10 million reward for the capture of the Islamist insurgents after Putin ordered that they be hunted down and "eliminated". According to a Kremlin statement, Putin requested the right to defend "the human rights and freedoms of citizens, the sovereignty of the Russian Federation, its independence and state integrity," by using security forces outside Russia.
