NALCHIK, October 5. /TASS/. Two gunmen from the international terrorist organization Imarat Caucasus were killed in a special operation in the North Caucasus’ Republic of Kabardino-Balkaria, a spokesman for the National Anti-terrorist Committee told TASS on Sunday.
“Police and security troops exposed two members of the local terrorist group, which is part of the outlawed international terrorist organization Imarat Caucasus, near the village of Psykhurei in the Baksan district of Kabardino-Balkaria. The gunmen refused to surrender arms and opened gunfire at the police and security officers and used grenades. The two were killed in an exchange of fire,” the spokesman said.
According to the spokesman, one of the gunmen was identified as Zaurbek Orshokdugov, born in 1984, who was a leader of an illegal armed group on the federal wanted list.
“The two killed gunmen were involved in organizing and committing a number of crimes against policemen and civilians, including the murder of a police officer and a local woman who practiced alternative medicine,” the spokesman said, adding that no one from among the police and civilians had been hurt.
