Six militants killed in Dagestan

Six militants have been killed in an anti-terrorist operation in Russia’s southern republic of Dagestan.

Four of them were shot dead after being surrounded in a house in the middle of the night on Thursday.
A major security operation involving helicopters began after a shoot-out on Tuesday, when a group of up to fourteen militants was discovered in a wooded area of the Tabasaransky district of Dagestan.

The Tuesday shoot-out left two militants dead and one soldier wounded.
