Russian Police Kill 2 Rebels After Suicide Blast

“Police in Russia’s south killed two suspected militants early Thursday in a counterterrorism operation launched in response to a suicide blast that took the lives of six officers.

An area on the outskirts of Makhachkala, the capital of Dagestan, has been in lockdown since Wednesday’s suicide car bombing at a police station as authorities hunted for the masterminds and their accomplices.

Dagestan, Ingushetia and Chechnya, all predominantly Muslim republics in the North Caucasus, saw a sharp rise in violence last year, with many of the nearly daily attacks targeting police and other officials. Suicide bombings, once rare, are occurring with growing frequency.”
