ROSTOV-ON-DON, September 5 (RIA Novosti) - A militant killed in Ingushetia in a special operation Friday was a bandit warlord and was involved in an attempt to kill the Russian North Caucasus republic's president, security agencies said.

A spokesman for the Russian Federal Security Service (FSB) in the Russian North Caucasus republic said three militants were killed yesterday, and one of them, Rustam Dzortov, born in 1979, had been on a wanted list in Russia.

"He from January 2009 led the activity of all gangs on the republic's territory... and, according to testimony by earlier detained Makhauri, was one of those who organized the attempt on the life of Ingush President Yunus-bek Yevkurov," he said.

Yevkurov underwent a series of operations in Moscow after sustaining head and internal injuries when a car bomb exploded as his motorcade passed on June 22. The region has seen a surge in militant violence in recent months.

Attacks on troops, police and other officials have been reported almost daily in Ingushetia and Russia's other North Caucasus republics in recent months. On August 17, Ingushetia was rocked by a suicide bombing which killed at least 24 police officers and injured 136.
