The
attack took place near the village of Dattikh in Ingushetia, one of
several Caucasus republics hit by an Islamic insurgency. Ingushetia lies
along the western border of Chechnya, where separatists have fought two full-scale wars with Russian forces over the past two decades.

Violence,
apparently inspired by the Chechen insurgency, has spread to nearby
republics of the multiethnic and predominantly Muslim region.

Interior
Ministry spokesman Mark Tolchinsky said Wednesday that a band of about
10 fighters set off a roadside bomb as a convoy of ministry troops
passed, then opened fire before fleeing into the area’s wooded
mountains.
