An operation on detention of a Chechen terrorist in Ingushetia's border region has been successfully accomplished by the Ingushetian, Russian and Chechen Interior Ministries' commandos on Wednesday. A 45-year-old citizen of Chechnya Said Vatiev had been temporarily residing in a tent settlement "Alina", situated on the outskirts of Sleptsovskaya village close to the administrative border with Chechnya, where he was detained.
