Two Alleged Militants Killed In Russia's Daghestan

Security forces in Russia's North Caucasus region of Daghestan have killed two men wanted for their alleged involvement into terrorist activities.

Russia's National Antiterrorist Committee (NAK) said on October 17 that the two suspects were killed in a special operation in Daghestan’s southeastern city of Derbent overnight.

Daghestan has been at the epicenter of a wave of violence by armed militants seeking to establish an Islamic caliphate in the North Caucasus.

Organized crime, business turf wars, political disputes, and clan rivalry also contribute to the bloodshed in the region.
