- Analysis: Light Shed On Ingush Militants' Motives RFE/RL 25 Jul 2004 -- On 19 July, the independent ingushetiya.ru website published an update by B. Bagaudinov on the ongoing investigation into the 21-22 June raids on Interior Ministry facilities in Ingushetia that left almost 90 people dead. Four days earlier, on 15 July, Russian Prosecutor-General Vladimir Ustinov gave the number of suspects arrested in connections with those coordinated attacks as approximately 30, of whom 20 have been formally charged. Bagaudinov failed to cite the source of his information, which seems plausible, however.
