Rising casualties in North Caucasus

The number of casualties, both dead and wounded, in the armed conflict in Russia’s North Caucasus has increased in 2008, according to figures published by the Anti-War Club. The rise in casualties has, first and foremost, been due to an increase in violence in the Republic of Ingushetia. The number of casualties in Ingushetia is now almost the same as in neighbouring Chechnya. The increase in casualties has been higher among members of law enforcement agencies and the civilian population than among the rebels.
