MOSCOW, March 12 (Itar-Tass) —— Five militants and a woman, their helpmate, were destroyed in Kabardino-Balkaria on Monday, a source in the information center of the National Antiterrorism Committee (NAC) told Itar-Tass. The bandits were destroyed in a counter-terrorist operation carried out by the operations headquarters.
A group of active members of bandits’ underground was spotted and blocked in a private house in Mir populated locality of the Chegem district. A task force of security bodies and units of the Interior Ministry acted on the basis of information the Federal Security Service had supplied, the source in the NAC said.
“Prior to the active phase of the operation, law enforcers evacuated residents of nearby houses and then suggested that the bandits lay down arms and surrender. The bandits opened fire instead. By return fire five bandits and a woman, their helpmate, were killed. Another woman was detained,” said the source.
A special operation was staged also in Dagestan on Monday. Two militants were liquidated in Makhachkala. One of them was Eldos Zulfugarov, the ringleader of the Makhachkala bandits’ underground, who was on the federal wanted list. According to the NAC information, both of them were involved in a number of grave crimes of terrorism.
