At least two Russian servicemen were killed on Saturday when a military convoy in the North Caucasus republic of Ingushetia came under militant fire, the local interior ministry said.

At around 10:00 a.m. Moscow time (06:00 GMT), “Unidentified assailants attacked a military convoy in Ingushetia with automatic firearms and grenade launchers. As a result of the attack, two troops died and two were hospitalized,” a spokesman for the ministry told RIA Novosti.

A police source said: “We do not have precise information on the number of attackers, but we believe there were between six and 15. After the shooting, they fled, and shots were fired at them. Some of the attackers may have been injured.”

Additional police and servicemen have been brought to the area to hunt down the attackers, he said.
