June 27, 2007 (RFE/RL) -- A Russian man formerly held at the U.S. detention camp for terror suspects at Guantanamo Bay has been killed in a shootout with Federal Security Service (FSB) officers.
Local prosecutor-general Oleg Zharikov said Ruslan Odizhev was shot dead during a police raid against rebels in Nalchik, the capital of the republic of Kabardino-Balkaria, in Russia's Caucasus.
Russian authorities say Odizhev was wanted for his alleged involvement in multiple attacks on police, army, and FSB facilities in Nalchik in October, 2005.
