Nikolai Shepel said investigators had enough evidence to prove the guilt of the suspect, Rasul Kudayev. "First of all, there is his own confession and the testimony of five witnesses, who said he led the militant group that assaulted the Interior Ministry's health facility and the presidential cottage."
On October 13, as many as 200 militants attacked administrative buildings in Nalchik. According to the Prosecutor General's Office, 35 law-enforcement officers and 12 civilians were killed. The Russian Interior Ministry said that during the two days of fighting that ensued, 91 militants were killed and 36 captured.
