Counter-Terrorism Operation Regime Imposed In Dagestan’s Capital

Posted by Info on 22/03/2010

A counter-terrorism operation regime was imposed early on Monday in a street in Makhachkala, the capital of Russia’s North Caucasus Republic of Dagestan. The special operation began as police trapped suspected militants in an apartment.

Russia’s mainly Muslim North Caucasus republics, especially Chechnya, Dagestan and Ingushetia, have seen an upsurge of militant violence lately, with frequent attacks on police and officials.
The Kremlin has pledged to wage “a ruthless fight” against militant groups but also acknowledged a need to tackle unemployment, organized crime, clan rivalry and corruption as causes of the ongoing violence.
