The Russians consider the border with war-torn Chechnya open for refugees, and it is--for those who want to go back and brave the Russian bombs raining on the separatist republic.

Of those thousands, only a trickle is being allowed to pass through to safety each day.

Russia allowed thousands of frightened and angry civilians to flee war-battered Chechnya on Thursday after blocking them at the border for more than a week. Russian ground forces, meanwhile, continued heavy artillery and rocket assaults in Moscow's campaign to wipe out Muslim militants in the separatist republic. More than 200,000 people have fled Chechnya since Russia's offensive began in September. Most have gone to the neighboring republic of Ingushetia.
