MOSCOW, December 28, 13:47 /ITAR-TASS/. A gunman from Doku Umarov's group is killed in Dagestan, a source at the National Antiterrorism Committee's information centre told Itar-Tass.
The bandit was neutralized when attempting to break through from the blocked house. The man is identified as Islam Atiyev, born in 1990. According to the NAC operational headquarters, since 2008 he had been in Doku Umarov's group operating in the Chechen Republic, the source said.
The gunman had a record of terrorist activities -- attacks against law-enforcement officers and blasts of homemade explosive devices.
The special operation began in the village of Petrovskoye in Khasavyurt's suburbs on Friday, December 27. Special FSB and police forces in the counter-terrorist operation blocked a house with gunmen inside and the territory around at 16:25 Moscow time. Residents were evacuated from nearby houses. Negotiations with the bandits were in vain.
As a result of an exchange of fire, a blaze broke out in the house.
The operation is over, a source of the Russian Investigative Committee's department in Dagestan said. "An investigating group is already working at the site," he said.
