Russian Police Kill 6 Suspected Insurgents in Dagestan

Russian authorities say six suspected insurgents have been killed in a raid in the capital of the republic of Dagestan.

Police initially said that two suspected rebels were killed in the Saturday operation at an apartment building in Makhachkala, but the National Anti-Terrorism Committee later said another four were killed when police searched other apartments in the building.

A committee statement said those killed were suspected in an array of terrorist actions, including attacks on police.

For more than a decade, Dagestan has been hit with bombings, attacks on police and kidnappings blamed on Islamic militants.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
