2 FSB Officers Slain in Nazran

ROSTOV-ON-DON — Security is being stepped up for government forces and police in Ingushetia after violence that left two Federal Security Service officers dead, the Interior Ministry said.

The officers were killed in separate attacks by gunmen Friday in Nazran, the main city in Ingushetia, said the Interior Ministry branch in southern Russia.

It said a police officer and a bystander were wounded when one of the attacks erupted into a gunfight near Nazran's train station. The ministry gave no details about the increased security measures.

On Thursday, two soldiers and a suspected militant were killed in a gunfight near Ingushetia's border with Chechnya, the ministry said.
