MAKHACHKALA, March 27. /ITAR-TASS/. Dagestan's police chief Abdurashid Magomedov said 13 illegal paramilitary formations are operating in the republic. In 2013, 167 terrorists were killed in the region, including ten gang leaders.
27 militants surrendered, and another 213 gunmen and their accomplices were detained and convicted in 2013, Magomedov said at a session of the regional parliament on Thursday.
He praised law-enforcers for successful operations to rout gangs in four areas of Dagestan.
According to the police officials, 92 law-enforcers were killed and another 176 were injured in attacks and acts of terror in Dagestan in 2013. Civilian casualties in these attacks were 12 dead and 73 wounded.
