A suspect has been arrested in connection with the murder of a local policeman's children in Russia's North Caucasus republic of Daghestan.
Officials with Russia's Investigative Committee say a local 21-year-old man was detained on February 13 and has confessed to the killings.
On February 11, two sons of a policeman in the village of Beledzhi were found stabbed to death in their house.
A jewelry box and about 300,000 rubles ($9,900) were missing.
Russia's volatile North Caucasus region is plagued by joblessness, corruption, and police brutality.
The violence is also fuelled by near-daily shootings and bomb attacks by Islamic insurgents targeting government officials and police.
