MAKHACHKALA, September 7. /TASS/. Security forces have blocked the house in the Russian North Caucasus city of Makhachkala where militants are hiding, a source in Dagestan’s law enforcement agencies told TASS on Wednesday.
"Security forces have blocked the house with militants in the morning. A shoot-out has already occurred," the source said.
The counter-terrorist operation regime was declared in Makhachkala’s Kirovsky district, a spokesman for the National Anti-Terrorism Committee’s operational headquarters in Dagestan told TASS earlier. "The regime was declared at 7am Moscow time," the spokesman added.
It was also earlier reported that a militant had been killed in a special forces operation in Russia’s North Caucasus city of Izberbash.
