Ingushetia blasts kill 1, injure 5

Yesterday, 7:50

A police officer was killed and five law enforcers were injured as two landmines exploded in the Russian North Caucasus republic of Ingushetia on Tuesday, regional law enforcement agencies reported.

The first explosion occurred in the Sunzhensky District, which borders on another North Caucasus republic, Chechnya, at about midday. The blast left three Russian Defense Ministry servicemen wounded.

When police officers arrived at the scene to inspect it, another landmine detonated injuring three Interior Ministry officers. One of them, a deputy chief of Ingushetia's riot police, later died of wounds in a hospital.

Ingush health officials said two seriously wounded police officers would be transported to Moscow for treatment.
