There are conflicting reports about an attack on Russian troops in the breakaway republic of Ingushetia. It’s reported at least 50 soldiers were killed in the assault. Russian forces have launched a counter-terrorism operation. The impoverished, mainly Muslim territory has suffered from an overspill of violence from neighbouring Chechnya following two seperatist wars there.
