MAKHACHKALA, January 12 (Itar-Tass) - One member of an illegal armed group was killed in a special operation in the village of Novy Khushet in Makhachkala's suburbs, and one policeman from a special SOBR unit died.
An armed gunman was blocked in a private house on Saturday morning. He opened fire in response to the order to surrender. He was killed by the return fire. One member of a SOBR (rapid-reaction) unit was fatally wounded in the exchange of fire, a source of the republic's law-enforcement authorities told Itar-Tass.
A fire has broken out in the house. When firefighters extinguish the blaze, investigators will begin working at the site.
