An explosives-filled truck blew up Monday in the restive southern Russian region of Ingushetia, killing four militants, the RIA-Novosti news agency reports.
Among the four was one of the closest associates of new Chechen rebel leader Doku Umarov, RIA-Novosti said, citing the Ingush regional department of the Federal Security Service. The truck was headed for another district of Ingushetia, where it was to be used in a terrorist attack, it said.
The Interfax news agency said that the Kamaz truck blew up during police special operation to liquidate rebels in the village of Ekazhevo in Ingushetia. The four militants were in two cars standing near the truck, it said, while RIA-Novosti said they were inside the truck.
Umarov took over as Chechnya’s new separatist leader last month after police killed Abdul-Khalim Sadulayev during a raid in an eastern Chechen town. Sadulayev’s predecessor Aslan Maskhadov was killed in a police operation in March 2005.
Umarov vowed to widen attacks to the rest of Russia but also said rebel forces would focus on military and police targets rather than civilians.
