At least 12
terrorist militant groups made up of up to 300 people operate in Dagestan. Interior Minister Abdurashid Magomedov said, "The militant underground [in Dagestan] remains highly active…12 armed groups numbering 250-300 militants continue to operate in the republic."
Magomedov said Dagestan registered 96
