MOSCOW, January 25 (Itar-Tass) — Law enforcers have begun an active phase of the counter-terrorism operation against gunmen blocked in a private residential house in the town of Chegem in Russia’s North Caucasian republic of Kabardino-Balkaria, where a counter-terrorism operation regime was imposed on Friday morning, a spokesman for the National Anti-terrorism Committee told Itar-Tass.
“Before the active phase, law enforcers evacuated people from the neighboring houses and offered the gunmen to surrender. After negotiations with law enforcers, the gunmen let go a woman with two minors, a two-year-old daughter and six-month son,” the spokesman said. “The militants however refused to come out of the house and opened gunfire at law enforcers. The operations headquarters took a decision to storm the house. Law enforcers detained an abettor of the militants.”
According to the National Anti-terrorism Committee, law enforcers blocked a group of armed militants from the so-called southwestern militant sector involved in terrorist activities in the republic of Kabardino-Balkaria.
Earlier, a police source told Itar-Tass that there could be up to six gunmen inside the house.
