MOSCOW, April 16 (Itar-Tass) — A group of gunmen has been blocked in Dagestan’s Novolakskoye district, a source from the information centre of the National Antiterrorism Committee told Tass on Monday.
The source said the operation is carried out by officers of the Federal Security Service and the Interior Ministry of Russia, which earlier received data on the whereabouts of the group of gunmen operating in the district. An antiterrorist operation regime was imposed in the district at 11 am, Moscow time, on Monday.
According to the source, gunmen offered fierce armed resistance during attempts to block the dugout where the gunmen were hiding. “At the present moment the area of the antiterrorist operation is blocked, and the active phase of the combat operation continues,” sources from the National Antiterrorism Committee said.
