Two Russian peacekeepers in Georgia's breakaway region of Abkhazia have been killed in an attack on a bus
Two Russian peacekeepers in Georgia's breakaway region of Abkhazia have been killed in an attack on a bus, the unrecognized republic's Interior Ministry said Thursday. The incident occurred Wednesday night when a bus of the Collective Peacekeeping Forces was carrying service pay from the southern Russian city of Sochi to Gudauta in the west of Abkhazia. The assailants opened automatic gunfire from a car, severely wounding two officers in a car escorting the bus. They died later in the hospital. A Russian Defense Ministry spokesman said early Thursday morning that Abkhazian police had detained two suspects. "Abkhazian police detained two suspects, one of whom was wounded, shortly after the attack," said Vyacheslav Sedov, head of the ministry's press service. He added that several others were also being questioned in connection with the attack.
