NALCHIK, March 27 (Itar-Tass) —— A gunman is killed in the special operation in a private house in Nalchik, a source of the Russian Investigation Committee's department in Kabardino-Balkaria told Itar-Tass.

The fire broke out in the house after the gunman threw a grenade at the cordon. Some time later, an explosion also went off in the cordoned house. According to neighbours, a man, aged about 30, resided in the house.
