Two suspected Islamic militants killed in Ingushetia attack

The Russian National Anti-terrorist Committee (NAK) announced it killed two allies of Islamist Chechen militant Doku Umarov in the Republic of Ingushetia on Tuesday. Ingushetia is a republic in the North Caucasus region with a predominantly Sunni Muslim population and a significant minority of ethnic Chechen citizens.

According to police, Dhamaleil Mutaliyev and Alikhan Ozdoev died in a shootout during the special operation. The counter-terrorist operation began after it became known a group of suspected militants took refuge in a house located in a village near Nazran, Ingushetia's largest city.

The Federal Security Service of the Russian Federation (FSB) considers Mutaliyev the leader of a militant group operating in the North Caucasian region. The FSB alleges him of organising terrorist attacks in August 2010 at a market in Vladikavkaz and at a police post near Chermen in September 2012.

During the operation a woman and child left the house after negotiations.

It's saddening to see Russian imperialistic spirits rise up again.
Caucasus must be free.
There is no genetic, cultural, religious connection between Caucasus and Russia.
One after another small Caucasus nations fall into oblivion fighting to death big
Russian bear.... A silent tragedy modern world doesn't care about.
One's terrorist, is another man's freedom fighter.
Why can we all just get along. This remind me of Tibet self-immolations though
surely nations of Caucasus are actively fighting back. Back to fav TV channel....
