Three Police Officers Killed In Russia's Volatile Ingushetia Region

Three police officers have been killed in a shoot-out with an armed group in the Malgobek district of Russia's North Caucasus region of Ingushetia, independent news agencies reported on April 6. State media didn’t report on the casualties but said police this week raided a hideout of a group that had attacked a security checkpoint late on March 27. That incident prompted police to impose a so-called “counterterror operation regime” in the area, it said. To read the original story from RFE/RL’s Russian Service, click here.
