Deadly bus blast terrorist killed in police shootout
A militant who claimed responsibility for a suicide bombing on a bus last month was killed Saturday in a shootout with Russian security forces, officials say. Dmitry Sokolov was among five terrorists militants killed near Dagestan's capital of Makhachkala when a gunfight erupted after negotiations for their surrender failed.

During the negotiations, Sokolov said he personally assembled the bomb that killed six people and wounded another 50 on a bus in Volgograd Oct. 20, said a statement by the National Anti-Terrorist Committee. Naida Asiyalova, Sokolov's wife who set off the explosives, died also.

Security forces had been searching for Sokolov since the bus bombing. He reportedly admitted to being responsible for other terror attacks, but officials did not say which other attacks were mentioned.
