North Caucasus

Imam Killed, Mosque Set Ablaze In Daghestan

x
Officials in Russia’s volatile North Caucasus republic of Daghestan say an imam and another person have been shot dead in an attack on a mosque.

Officials said the attackers also set the mosque on fire in the attack shortly before midnight on June 28 in the settlement of Karamakhi, in the Buinaksk district.

According to a spokesman for the Daghestani Interior Ministry, several masked men broke into the mosque and opened fire at imam Magomedkamil Gamzatov and a visitor.

The spokesman said the attackers then set the mosque on fire and fled in a “stolen car.”

The fire was reportedly extinguished by local residents.

There was no immediate indication of who may have been responsible.

this terrorist act has been committed by peaceful Wahhabi Sunni activists sponsored by US and Saudi governments and trained by CIA.

While I agree with the above statement, I must mention that it was posted by a friendly yet jealous RFE/RL staffer, jealous of my length as well as my girth.

Russian terrorists kill Muslims in the Caucasus. They killed over 100,000,000 people for the past century.
Enough said.

I suffer from schizophrenia that is why you can see me agreeing and disagreeing with myself at the same time. I like talking to myself. My Oxford English is perfect. RFE/RL is CIA-based organization in Moscow, Russia.
