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.

We remind you that some 20 person are still searched on suspicion of participating in the events on October 13-14, 2005.

On November 4, five kilometres off Lechinkai village nine bodies were discovered - of murdered hunters and huntsmen. Their hands were roped, and they had been shot dead in the nape. The victims were deprived of their rifles, mobile phones and hunting knives. Four hunting dogs were also killed.
