Militant Killed in Russia\'s Dagestan.

Moscow, April 08 (BNA) - A suspected militant was killed in a security operation in Russia's North Caucasus Republic of Dagestan. "At about 4 hours in the morning, a member of an illegal armed formation was blocked in a car and killed during a shootout in a security sweep in Groznenskaya Street in Khasavyurt," the regional investigative department said.

There are no casualties among the police, the investigative department said. "During the search in the car, the police found and seized a Kalashnikov assault rifle with four magazines, a Stechkin pistol with five magazines and a grenade," the investigative department said. More that a decade after the end of a federal war against separatists in Russia's North Caucasus republic of Chechnya, Russian security forces continue to fight militants in other regions in the area, who stage frequent attacks on security forces, police and civilians.
