Russian military convoy attacked in North Caucasus

Two Russian soldiers have been killed and seven wounded in a suspected militant attack in Russia's Republic of Ingushetia.

The military convoy came under heavy fire. The attackers fled, and a manhunt is underway.

A criminal case has been launched into the attack.

The North Caucasus republic has been plagued by violence in recent years, despite a militant crackdown by security forces.
