This week, Ingushetia's interior minister, Dzhabrail Kostoev, was assassinated by a roadside bomb on the outskirts of the republic's capital Nazran. The bomb also killed two bodyguards and four civilians.

In the same week, Nurpashi Kulayev - supposedly the only surviving attacker in the Beslan school seizure - was found guilty of terrorism, hostage taking, murder and other charges by the North Ossetia Supreme Court.

Chechnya Weekly has an analysis of a possible connection between these two events, and points to the possibility that other Beslan attackers are still at large - contrary to official Russian state propaganda.
