More than 400 police officers and other law enforcement agents have been killed by militants over the past five years in just one of Russia's restive southern provinces, its leader says.

Yunus-Bek Yevkurov, the president of the province of Ingushetia west of Chechnya, said at a rally Saturday that more than 3,000 civilians have been wounded in attacks by militants in the region over the same period, a statement on his administration's official website said Sunday.

Ingushetia and other provinces in Russia's restive North Caucasus region have been plagued by Islamic militant attacks, which spread across the region after two separatist wars in neighboring Chechnya. Rights groups say that police abuses against civilians have fueled violence.
