North Caucasus

Eight Killed In Daghestan Shoot-Out

Officials say five policemen and three militants in a shoot-out with suspected armed militants in the Daghestan region in Russia's volatile North Caucasus.

Russian Investigative Committee officials said the police were attacked in Daghestan's Botlikh district when they arrived in the village of Chanko to check reports from local residents that a group of armed people had been spotted in a forest close to the village.

Daghestan's Interior Ministry has confirmed the information.

Violence between suspected Islamic militants and security forces in the North Caucasus region, which includes Daghestan, Chechnya, Ingushetia, and Kabardino-Balkaria, leaves dozens of people dead and injured each year.
