Jacki Lyden talks with Fiona Hill, a fellow in foreign policy studies at the Brookings Institution, about Chechnya. Hill talks about the Chechen rebels, who were behind the hostage-taking at a Moscow theater last week. She says it's clear they are members of a radical faction acting without support from the greater Chechen population. (4:30)
