Michelle Malkin points out that most news stories ignore or gloss over the fact that this was an Islamic jihad attack. This one at least notes that this time in Chechnya it was “Islamic,” instead of the usual “Methodist,” militants. “Militant Attacks on Russian City Leave 108 Dead,” from the LA Times, with thanks to all who sent this in:
MOSCOW — Authorities said today that 108 people have been killed in Russia’s North Caucasus region as Islamic militants have staged coordinated attacks on police and government buildings in a new wave of violence spilling over from war-torn Chechnya.
At least 24 law enforcers, 12 civilians and 65 guerrillas have died in the two days of fighting in Nalchik, capital of the predominantly Muslim republic of Kabardino-Balkaria, authorities said. Seven more guerrillas were reported killed in an outlying district and 17 were captured.
