(Reuters) - At
school No. 20 in Russia's troubled region of Chechnya, boys sit on one
side of the classroom and girls in headscarves on the other. All are
silent as the new teacher rises to speak.
"Do you say your morning
prayers?" Islam Dzhabrailov, 21, asks, wearing a green prayer cap and a
plain tunic, religious dress that is increasingly popular in the
mountainous province in southern Russia's mostly Muslim Caucasus region.
