Police kill two militants in Dagestan siege

Two militants have been killed and another detained in a police raid on an apartment in the southern Russian republic of Dagestan.

The siege at the apartment in the capital Makhachkala lasted almost a day.

One policeman was injured in the crossfire.

The militants are wanted in connection with the killing of several policemen last week.

Several handguns and a rifle were found in the house.
