    MOSCOW, Jan. 23 (Xinhua) -- Two Russian servicemen were killed and three more wounded on Wednesday in an attack in the Russia's North Caucasus Republic of Ingushetia, RIA news agency reported.

    "Two soldiers were killed and three wounded when unknown assailants fired shots at their car near a military base in the Sunzhensky district of Ingushetia," local police source was quoted as saying.

    Ingushetia and Daghestan border the republic of Chechnya, which suffered two wars against separatists from the 1990s to early 2000s. Attacks on police and authorities are still frequent in those regions.
