MAKHACHKALA, September 8 (Itar-Tass) — Unknown gunmen opened fire from submachine-guns and grenade-launchers at an outpost of Russian border guards in the Tsuntinski district in the west of the North Caucasian region of Dagestan.
According to a source in the regional Interior agencies, the incident occurred at around 22:00 hours Moscow Standard Time near the village of Khupri.
