CAUCUSUS---SLUG: Ingushetia DATE: October 8, 2009 CREDIT: Andrea Bruce LOCATION: Ingushetia, russia CAPTION: Guns are shot in the air to celebrate the wedding party for Medina Khamkoyeva. The wedding took place in a wealthy but traditional Ingushetia home. Ingushetia is one of Russia's poorest and most restive regions. The ongoing military conflict in neighboring Chechnya has occasionally spilled into Ingushetia, and the republic has been destabilized by corruption and a number of high-profile crimes.
