North Caucasus

Militant Leader Killed In Security Raid In Karachayevo-Cherkessia

Security troops and local police in the Russian region of Karachayevo-Cherkessia, in the volatile North Caucasus region, have killed several militants, including a wanted militant leader.

The republic's authorities on June 13 identified one of the militants killed in the overnight raid as Umar Baichorov, 26, who officials said was wanted for masterminding and conducting several attacks targeting local police last year.

The militants had been surrounded by security forces in a private house in the village of Pervomaiskoye late on June 12.

The exact number of the killed militants was not made public.

Violence between suspected Islamic militants and security forces in Russia's North Caucasus, which also includes Daghestan, Chechnya, Ingushetia, and Kabardino-Balkaria, leads to hundreds of deaths and injuries each year.

Russians again killed a number of peaceful Wahhabi Sunni activists, who studied Koran in Saudi Arabia and trained by CIA for peaceful protests. US government provided peaceful Muslim activists with arms to defend civilians against Russian occupiers. And look what happened. A peaceful activists again were brutally killed by Russian troops. Days of mourning never end at CIA headquarters. Hillary must be crying in her bed.
