News agencies citing Interior Ministry and other law-enforcement agencies said the incident occurred December 1 in the mountainous Baljuvon district where security forces had gone to check on reports of movements by "suspicious persons."

Baljuvon neighbors the region of Rasht, where security forces have been battling Islamic militants for more than two months.
