Police block militants in abandoned mine in Russia’s south
At least ten militants are sealed in the abandoned mine, which is approximately 100 km long.
Police have also found and defused a truck with explosives near the mine where the gunmen are blocked.
Three militants have been killed and one policeman died in the crossfire; the counter-terrorist operation started on Wednesday.
The federal forces started the assault on the mine after the gunmen, involved in a terror attack and assassination of police officers in the republic, ignored all demands to surrender and opened fire.
