Police block militants in abandoned mine in Russia’s south

Police block militants in abandoned mine in Russia’s south
A militants’ hideout is being neutralized during a special operation in the Russian Republic of Kabardino-Balkaria.

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.
