Mikhailenko was astonished to hear that she had been raped and murdered, along with her teenage daughter, in a fierce outbreak of racial hatred carried out by Chechens against their Russian Cossack neighbors.

Patima Ablusheva is a child of war, born nearly four years ago during the last fight for her homeland.

She was burned Oct. 18 when a bomb set afire her relatives' home in a suburb of Grozny, the Chechen capital.
