Daghestan's Interior Ministry spokeswoman Angela Martirosova says the fighting began on the evening of May 12 and continued until early this morning.
Daghestan has seen increased violence in recent years due to competition between criminal gangs and fighting that has spilled over from neighboring Chechnya.
