Two terrorists killed in North Caucasus
Two people, killed in a special operation in the North Caucasus on Wednesday, were
terrorists militants who had prepared a series of attacks in the area, the National Anti-Terrorism Committee (NAK) said.
The NAK statement reads. “According to our data, members of the eliminated armed group were involved in attacks on law-enforcers and extortion of money from the republic’s businessmen. They also plotted attacks on law-enforcers and officials in January and February. Therefore, a series of militant attacks on the republic’s territory was prevented by prompt actions of the FSB and the Interior Ministry.”
A special anti-terror operation was launched in the city of Tyrnyauz in Kabardino-Balkaria after a group of three suspected
terrorists militants was blocked in a five-story building. A woman, believed to be an accomplice of the gunmen, and a two-year-old girl were in the apartment where the gunmen took refuge.
During the course of negotiations, the child was allowed to leave the apartment, but the woman would not leave. The apartment was stormed when the gunmen fired shots at law-enforcers. Two suspected
terrorists militants, aged 20 and 22, and the 25-year-old woman, were killed in the shootout.
Authorities detained three people thought to be accomplices of the gunmen.
Two assault rifles, a grenade, a pistol and ammunition were found in the apartment. The
terrorists militants had also installed five homemade bombs in the building. Three of them were detonated when law-enforcers burst in. The statement made no mention of any injuries or casualties among the law-enforcers.
