1 man killed in attack on Russian official

Officials in the volatile Russian province of Ingushetia say suspected militants killed a man during an attack on a regional minister.
Police spokeswoman Madina Khadziyeva said two gunmen shot at the emergency minister's car killing the driver.
She said the minister was not in the car during the attack which could be related to his professional duties.
Ingushetia is at the center of the recent upsurge in violence linked to an Islamist insurgency that has been rocking Russia's North Caucasus.
It borders Chechnya, where Russian troops have fought two full-scale wars against separatist rebels in the past 15 years.
