With all of the news coming out of India and the major terrorist attack that has happened there, this story pales in comparison but it's up here because it's a reminder that islamofascism is rampant and it is everywhere. The Russians have a jihad problem. A very real problem. This attack came just a day after the islamic jihadists in North Ossetia assassinated the mayor of a city there. Here's the entire article from RIA Novosti:
Three killed in South Russia car attack
VLADIKAVKAZ, November 27 (RIA Novosti) - At least three people were killed on Thursday when a car came under fire in central Vladikavkaz, the capital of Russia's North Caucasus republic of North Ossetia, a local police source said.
As a result of the attack, a BMW off-road vehicle lost control and crashed into another car. The incident took place in front of the regional department of the Federal Penitentiary Service.
The source told RIA Novosti that gunmen fired with assault rifles from a car, which was subsequently found burnt out on the city outskirts.
The attack came a day after the assassination of the mayor of Vladikavkaz. Vitaly Karayev was shot while getting into his car outside his home.
The Kataib al-Khoul Islamist group claimed responsibility for the mayor's murder, in a statement on Thursday released by a website believed to have links to Chechen militants.
North Ossetia was the focus of international attention in September 2004, when terrorists seized Beslan's School No.1 killing 331 people including 186 children. The republic neighbors the troubled Chechnya and Georgia, with which Russia fought a brief war in August.
