      Police Officer Killed in Russia’s North Caucasus

      MAKHACHKALA, July 1 (RIA Novosti)

      Unknown gunmen shot dead a police officer in Russia’s volatile North Caucasus republic of Dagestan in the early hours of Sunday, a police source said.

      Visrail Kugiyev was attacked at around 0:30 am (20:30 GMT, Saturday) in the Dagestani city of Khasavyurt. He was talking to a friend in the street when the gunmen opened fire on him from a car.

      Kugiyev died at the scene.

      More that a decade after the end of a federal war against separatists in the Russian North Caucasus republic of Chechnya, Russian security forces continue to fight militants in other regions in the area, including Dagestan, where attacks on security forces, police and civilians are frequent.
