PYATIGORSK, August 6 (Itar-Tass) - Law-enforcement bodies destroyed a gang leader and four gunmen in the North Caucasus last week, the police department for the North Caucasus Federal District reported on Tuesday.
In all, police and federal forces carried out 64 search/operation events. Rizuan Vorokov, a leader of the so-called northwestern sector of Kabarda, Balkaria and Karachai of Imarat Kavkaz, and four members of illegal paramilitary formations were destroyed. Law-enforcers detained six of their accomplices," the police department said.
A large quantity of ammunition, weapons and explosives were retrieved from eight caches found in the area.
One terrorist crime - shelling - was reported in Dagestan’s Kyakentsky district. In Makhachkala, detectives managed to prevent a similar crime.
Gun-toting militants continue to pose a threat to the stability of the situation in the region. "The gang leaders focus on recruiting new members to compensate their losses, expanding the network of abettors, and keeping the militants' control system and terrorist potential for further armed confrontation against law-enforcers," a police officer said.
