Security forces kill terror suspect in Caucasus
Russia said it had killed on Wednesday a
terrorist militant wanted for bombing an outdoor market in the North Caucasus in 2010.
Security forces gunned down Sultangery Khashagulgov and one of three brothers suspected of staging an attack on a busy market in the North Ossetia capital of Vladikavkaz that killed 19 people in 2010.
Khashagulgov, a businessman and former minister in charge of construction in the province of Ingushetia, was killed when he opened fire on security forces who attempted to arrest him at his home in the regional capital of Nazran. Security forces had earlier detained Khashagulgov's brothers Isa and Yakuba.
Three bombs targeted law enforcement officials in Dagestan late on Tuesday. No one was killed in the attacks. A police officer was taken to the hospital with gunshot wounds after a separate late-night shooting.
Gunmen also opened fire late on Tuesday on the main offices of the Investigative Committee, the government's criminal investigation agemcy, in Makhachkala, Dagestan's provincial capital. There were no reported injuries.
