Ingushetia bombs 'targeted' police officers

Text size Aa Aa

Bombs in Russia’s turbulent Ingushetia region have killed at least two people and injured 28 others, including top local law enforcement officials.  
 
Ingushetia’s Interior Ministry said there were three explosions that may have been booby-traps targeting the security forces.
 
The blasts – on the outskirts of the region’s biggest city, Nazran – killed two people including at least one police officer.
 
An upsurge in violence in Ingushetia, Chechnya and neighbouring Dagestan has alarmed the Kremlin nearly a decade after government forces defeated Chechen rebels in the second of two devastating separatist wars.
