MOSCOW, March 10. /TASS/. The Kremlin has condemned Wednesday’s attack on a bus carrying journalists and human rights activists in Russia’s North Caucasus republic of Ingushetia.
"This is absolutely outrageous, this is absolutely hooliganism," Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said, adding that "the life of people was endangered."
Peskov stressed that the attack is "absolutely unacceptable."
"We expect that the republic’s law enforcement bodies will take the most efficient measures to search for and find those guilty of the attack to duly ensure security of human rights activists and mass media representatives and in general," he said.
Russian President Vladimir Putin has been informed of the incident, Peskov said. He gave no details if the attack is "under special control." "We expect that the republic’s authorities will take all the necessary measures."
A source in law enforcement agencies told TASS earlier that on March 9 a group of journalists and human rights activists was attacked near the settlement of Ordzhonikidzevskata on the border between Ingushetia and Chechnya by around 20 unidentified persons. The attackers set the car of activists on fire, seized their cell phones and drove away. Six people were injured in the attack, and four of them sought medical aid.
