IC of Kabardino-Balkaria: hunters' killers could participate in attack on Nalchik

According to one of the versions, the militants who murdered hunters in the forest near Lechinkai village on November 4 could be involved in the attack on power agencies of Kabardino-Balkaria in October 2005.

This version was announced to the press conference in Nalchik by Valery Ustov, head of the Investigatory Committee (IC) of the Kabardino-Balkarian Republic (KBR). He added that the dugout where the militants kept hiding had enough room for 10-12 persons; it was nicely equipped and contained a significant stock of foodstuffs.

In Mr Ustov's opinion, the murderers could take the hunters for militiamen, since they were dressed in camouflage.

Currently, the law enforcement bodies are in active search for the militants.
