Russia kills 10 insurgents in Ingushetia

Russian security forces killed 10 insurgents in Ingushetia on Thursday, a local law enforcement official said.

The killing occurred near the border with neighbouring Chechnya, after a tip-off early on Thursday that insurgents were in the region.

"No information on federal losses has yet been received," the official told Reuters in Nazran, Ingushetia's largest city.

He said some fighting was continuing, but gave no details.

Russia imposed its control in Muslim states in the 1990s. Still low-level insurgency against Russia for independence continues in Muslim states.

Human rights groups have repeatedly accused the authorities of serious abuses including house burning, extra-judicial killings, torture and illegal punishment.
