MOSCOW, November 22. /TASS/. Eleven militants were killed in a special operation in the capital of the North Caucasus Republic of Kabardino-Balkaria, the information center of the National Anti-Terror Committee said on Sunday.

Previous reports said that ten militants who had sworn allegiance to the Islamic State terrorist organization were killed in Kabardino-Balkaria.

"According to preliminary information, 11 bandits were killed in a special operation. All of them were members of the bandit formation that had sworn allegiance to the Islamic State terrorist organization," the National Anti-Terror Committee said.

The active phase of the special operation is continuing, the committee said.
