Unidentified gunmen shot and killed a police officer
Unidentified gunmen shot and killed a police officer and made off with his service weapon in Russia's North Caucasus republic of Daghestan, a law enforcement source said on Friday.

According to the source, the attack occurred late Thursday when the officer stopped a Zhiguli vehicle on the Kavkaz federal highway to carry out a document check.

The source said that during the check one of the men opened fire on the traffic officer, wounding him and then took his Kalashnikov with 60 cartridges and fled the scene.

The police officer was taken to a nearby hospital but later died of his injuries.

A criminal investigation has been launched.

Daghestan and Russia's other North Caucasus republics have seen a rise in violence recently linked to militants based in neighboring Chechnya and internal fighting between criminal gangs.
