      'Rebel hideout' in Dagestan stormed

      Saturday 31 July 2004

      Three suspected rebels and two policemen have been killed in a clash in
      the southern Russian republic of Dagestan bordering war-torn Chechnya,
      police officials said.

      Police stormed into an apartment sheltering suspected fighters "who
      seeped into Dagestan from Chechnya and planned a series of terrorist
      acts, including capture of hostages and vitally important objects",
      officials were quoted by the Russian Interfax news agency as saying.

      Police also said they detained a suspected accomplice.

        4 Police Killed in Dagestani Gun Battle

        The Associated Press MAKHACHKALA -- Unidentified gunmen killed four
        police officers in clashes with police in Dagestan, officials said
        Friday.

        The gunmen driving a vehicle fired at police when they stopped it for
        a document check in the town of Kizlyar in northern Dagestan, just
        across the border from Chechnya.

        One policeman was killed on the spot and the second one died later in
        a hospital, the local branch of the federal Interior Ministry said in
        a statement.

        The gunmen then ran to a nearby apartment building, broke into one of
        the apartments and barricaded themselves up, firing at police who
        tried to approach the building.

        The authorities evacuated the building's residents, blocked the area
        and launched an operation to flush the gunmen out. In the ensuing gun
        battle, the gunmen killed two police officers and wounded another
        two, police spokesman Abdul Musayev said, Interfax reported.

        Musayev also said all three gunmen who were in the building were
        killed in the storming, Itar-Tass reported. Initial reports put the
        gunmen's number at five or six, and it was unclear whether any of
        them escaped.

        Dagestani Interior Minister Adylgirei Magomedtagirov said the gunmen
        had crossed into Dagestan from Chechnya with an apparent goal to
        stage attacks in the region, Interfax reported.

        Magomedtagirov also said police had detained a local woman suspected
        of being linked to the gunmen.
