MOSCOW, August 22 (Itar-Tass) — Investigators additionally classified the suicide bombing at the funeral of a police officer in the Malgobek district on August 19 as an act of terror, Investigative Committee spokesman Vladimir Markin said. Criminal proceedings were opened under Article 205 /"act of terror"/.
Earlier, the case was opened under Article 317 of Russia' penal code /"attempted murder of law-enforcement personnel"/, Article 105, Part 2 /"murder of two or more persons committed by publicly dangerous method/ and Article 222 /"illegal turnover of weapons/.
On August 18, unidentified persons fired at a VAZ-2107 carrying district police officer Ilez Korigov, 26, in the yard of a multi-storey apartment hose in Oskanov Street, Malgobek. He died of his wounds in hospital.
The next day, when police arrived at the Ingush village of Sagopshi for the funeral of their colleague, a suicide bomber approached them and blasted himself, killing seven policemen and injuring another 15. The crime was committed on the Uraza Bayram holiday that marked completion of the holy month of Ramadan.
"At present, police are taking measures towards ascertaining all the circumstances of the crime," the SK spokesman said.
