Four suspected militants have been killed in a special operation in Russia's North Caucasus Republic of Ingushetia.

A counterterrorism operation in the village is continuing.

Ingushetia, along with Russia's other volatile North Caucasus republics such as Kabardino-Balkaria, Daghestan, and Chechnya, continues to experience violence linked to Islamic extremists and organized criminal groups.
