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.
The headquarters report two of the militants were on the federal wanted list. One of the militants was Andzor Guchapshev, born 1986, who was head of the underground’s “North-Eastern sector” in Kabardino-Balkaria.
