MAKHACHKALA, November 30. /TASS/. The anti-terror security alert regime was lifted in the North Caucasus republic of Dagestan on Monday, a representative of the National Anti-Terror Committee told TASS.
"Today, at 11a.m., the anti-terror security alert regime, which was introduced on Sunday, was lifted," the representative said.
A group of militants was at the border between Suleiman-Stal and Magarmakent districts. They refused to surrender and were killed by return fire, the Committee’s information centre said on Sunday.
"The killed militants were on the federal wanted lists - they have sworn to the Islamic State (IS) international terrorist organisation (outlawed in Russia) - Makhmoud Makhmoudov, born in 1979, who had sheltered since 2012; Robert Melikov, born in 1985, head of the Suleiman-Stal bandit group; and Hassan Mamedyarov, born in 1989, who returned earlier in 2015 from Syria, where he participated in military actions supporting militants there; then he returned to Dagestan and joined the bandit group," the information centre said.
