Imam Shot Dead

The imam of a mosque in Dagestan was shot dead by unidentified gunmen, police said Friday.

The victim, Zainudin Daiziyev, was at least the third imam killed since June in Dagestan.

Unidentified gunmen entered Daiziyev's home in the village of Kadar late Thursday and opened fire at him with automatic weapons, Dagestan's Interior Ministry said. Police found 57 spent shells at the scene.
