MOSCOW, December 18. /TASS/. Three militants, including a group’s leader, were killed in the North Caucasus’ Kabardino-Balkaria on Thursday, the National Anti-Terror Committee told TASS.

“The headquarters in Kabardino-Balkaria received information this night that a group of militants had sheltered in a private house in the Baksan district,” the source said.

Head of the regional branch of Russia’s FSB (federal security service) ordered beginning of an anti-terror operation and a security alert regime. The civilians were evacuated, and the law enforcement forces blocked the area.

“At 5:40 a.m. the three militants attempted a breakthrough, and were killed,” the source said.
