MAKHACHKALA, October 5 (Itar-Tass) — A group of gunmen is blocked in a flat in a five-storey building in the Dagestani city of Buinaksk, a law enforcement source in the republic told Itar-Tass.
Up to three members of illegal armed groups have been blocked in a flat on the fourth floor in the building since the night, the source said.
The gunmen offered resistance to the law-enforcement officers in response to the order to surrender. Preparations are underway to storm the flat. Residents are evacuated from that and nearby buildings.
Late on Thursday, a policeman was injured in a car explosion in the Dagestani city of Derbent.
