MOSCOW, September 30 (Itar-Tass) - Two gunmen killed in Kabardino-Balkaria, Russia’s republic in the North Caucasus, were part of the international terrorist organisation Imar Kavkaz and were involved in weapons supplies for illegal armed groups operating in the republic, a source from the Russian National Anti-terrorist Committee told Itar-Tass on Monday.
The committee’s information centre said a vehicle carrying an armed group of three was blocked by police and security forces on Sunday evening near the settlement of Dugulubgei. The occupants opened fire and two of them were killed in a return exchange. A third gunman was wounded but managed to escape.
The men were identified as active members of Imrat Kavkaz. Three Kalashnikov automatic weapons were found at the scene along with a pistol and three grenades. There were no other casualties in the operation.
Reporting an earlier incident, security officials said two local residents had battled with law enforcers. According to the record, police had been trailing their car and ordered them to surrender as they drove into a courtyard, where they sheltered and opened fire in a three-hour fight.
