Two gunmen killed in Russia’s North Caucasus

Two militants have been killed in a special operation by Russian security forces in the country’s North Caucasus region.

­The militants opened fire from their car before being shot by police.

It has been confirmed that they were leaders of a criminal group that extorted money from local businessmen.

Officials say the money was used to aide militants and extremist groups.

So far this year the North Caucasus region has been gripped by nearly daily violence between authorities and terrorists.
