Russia: Counter-Terror Operation in Dagestan – 3 Police Dead, 4 Injured

Posted by Info on 13/04/2011

Three police officers were killed and four others wounded in a shootout with militants in the Dagestan region of the Russian Caucasus, according to law enforcement. One fighter was reportedly killed.
The counter-terror operation which was unleashed Monday is still underway with a special curfew being imposed during the time of the crackdown. The operation has been complicated by heavy weather conditions, police say, as the roads of Dagestan are still under thick snow. The bandits reportedly have captured some crucial positions, and special units have been deployed by federal forces to overrun them.
