The Chief of Police in the Sunzha district of Ingushetia has been killed after leaving a mosque. Abdurahman Neyriyev was attacked on his way home after night prayers. A police manhunt is underway for those involved.

Attacks on law-enforcement officers have increased recently in Ingushetia.

On Monday, unidentified attackers killed a Russian Federal Security officer Alikhan Kalimatov.

Investigators suggest there may be a connection with his inquiry into abductions in neighboring North Ossetia.
