Suicide bombers strike a Russian military hospital near the breakaway republic of Chechnya, destroying the building. Reports suggest at least 35 people are dead, and the toll is expected to rise. The attack belies Moscow's claims that the situation in Chechnya is stabilizing. NPR's Lawrence Sheets reports.
