MAKHACHKALA, October 8. /TASS/. Three armed militants who opened fire on a police checkpoint in the mountains in Russia’s North Caucasus republic of Dagestan have been killed, a law enforcement source said Wednesday.

The source told TASS that three militants stole a car in the village of Khebda, approached the police checkpoint near the village and opened fire. They were eliminated by return fire. No police officers were killed or wounded in the shootout.

An investigation is underway.

Russia’s law enforcement agencies continue fighting militants in Dagestan over 13 years since the battle phase of the second war against Islamist separatists in the neighboring Chechnya came to an end in 2000. Attacks on security officials and civilians occur from time to time in Dagestan, Ingushetia and Kabardino-Balkaria.
