North Caucasus

Four Suspected Militants Killed, Two Detained In Ingushetia

Officials say four suspected militants have been killed and at least two others detained in a security operation in Russia's restive republic of Ingushetia in the North Caucasus.

Initial reports said three militants were killed.

Officials said the operation was launched in a bid to find suspects who might have been involved in the August 19 bombing of a police officer's funeral in the village of Sagopshi that killed eight police officers and injured 15 other people.

Violence between suspected Islamic militants and security forces in Russia's North Caucasus region leaves scores of people dead and injured each year.

Volatile republics in the region include Ingushetia, Daghestan, Chechnya, and Kabardino-Balkaria.

surely RFE/RL would not call peaceful Wahhabi Sunni activists a terrorists, would it? Because US government is a big friend and an ally of Wahhabi Sunni activists, everywhere, from Ingushetia to Syria to Kosovo to Bosnia. US government even helped peaceful Wahhabi Sunni activists liberate World Trade Center from infidels on 9/11. Hillary Clinton is weeping and crying today for the peaceful Wahhabi Sunni activists brutally killed by evil Russian police

None of the killed were in a wanted list. Sir Arthur Getogazhev who was appointed as responsible for the attack on the police is still at large. Russians are incompetent.
