Police have detained two of the main organisers of an anti-government protest in the southern Russian region of Ingushetia, local interior ministry sources said on Friday.

Mainly Mulsim Ingushetia borders Chechnya, the centre of two wars between rebels and Russian soldiers since 1994. Unrest has soared in Ingushetia over the last 12 months and barely a day passes without a bomb attack, kidnapping or murder.

Police detained Maksharip Aushev and Magomed Evloev on Thursday and drove them to a detention centre in Nalchik in the neighbouring republic of Kabardino-Balkaria, said the source who declined to be identified.
