North Caucasus

Two Militants Killed In Security Operation In Daghestan

Authorities in Russia's restive Daghestan region say two suspected militants have been killed in a special operation in the republic's Leninkent residential area near the capital, Makhachkala.

Officials said the militants blockaded themselves in a house and refused to surrender.

They were then killed by security forces, who later found an explosive device in the house.

Experts were reported working at the scene to defuse the explosive device.

Mostly Muslim-populated Daghestan is one of the most volatile republics in Russia's North Caucasus, where Islamic insurgents professing the extreme Wahhabi form of Islam regularly attack police, military personnel, and moderate Muslims.

this is not a good day for Hillary Clinton. I can see her weeping from my hotel window. Evil Russian police again killed peaceful Wahhabi Sunni activists which were trained by CIA and financed by Saudi Arabia and US government.
