      Antiterrorist Operation Under Way In Daghestan

      April 12, 2013

      At least one person has been killed and two more wounded in a continuing security operation in Russia's North Caucasus republic of Daghestan.

      Interior Ministry officials say the operation was launched on April 11 when security forces in Daghestan's central Untsukul district surrounded a group of suspected militants.

      The suspects opened fire at the security forces, sparking a gunfight that left one suspected militant dead and a second injured.

      A security officer was wounded in continued fighting on April 12 after a second group of militants attacked the security forces from behind.

      In a separate incident, two guards at a former military base in a neighboring district were shot dead by unknown attackers late on April 11.

      Daghestan is one of the most volatile republics in the North Caucasus, with violence linked to Islamic extremists and criminal groups.

      Deadly Violence Rocks Daghestan

      April 12, 2013

      An explosion near a school in the Daghestani city of Buinaksk has killed at least one policeman and wounded three others in the latest incident during two days of violence in Russia's North Caucasus republic of Daghestan.

      The explosion late on April 12 came after a two-day gun battle in Daghestan's Untsukul district.

      The Untsukul fighting started on April 11 when security forces surrounded a group of suspected militants.

      Three militants were eventually killed but at least one member of the security forces was wounded when another group launched an assault against them on April 12.

      A checkpoint in the area was also attacked on the same day but no casualties were reported.

      Daghestan is one of the most volatile republics in the North Caucasus, with violence linked to Islamic extremists and criminal groups.

      Three gunmen killed in Dagestan

      MOSCOW. April 12 (Interfax) - Three gunmen supposedly belonging to the so-called Gimry gang were killed in a special operation in Dagestan on Friday, the National Antiterrorist Committee (NAC) told Interfax.

      The Gimry gang is responsible for killing Dagestani Deputy Interior Minister Omarov and three policemen escorting him in 2005, the NAC said.

      These gunmen are also responsible for killing deputy head of the local criminal investigations department Magomedov, head of the Dagestani Interior Ministry's organized crime department Zubairov and an operative from the economic crimes department Abdullayev, and also the chief and an operative of the Untsukul district police department and a senior official from the Buinaksk city police department, it said.

      The same people are suspected of killing Federal Security Service (FSB) officer Gazimagomedov in December 2005 and Buinaksk Prosecutor Bitarov in August 2006.
