Three suspected militants were killed in Daghestan in a shootout
Three suspected militants were killed in Daghestan in a shootout with police, the Russian North Caucasus republic's Interior Ministry said on Tuesday.

The shooting occurred in the town of Khasavyurt bordering Chechnya late on Monday, when police tried to stop a suspicious car.

"Police managed to make the car stop following a chase," the ministry said. "Three men inside opened fire. Police officers returned fire killing them."

The ministry said they were trying to establish the identity of the dead men.

Daghestan and Russia's other North Caucasus regions have been plagued by violence linked to separatists based in Chechnya, a police crackdown on Islamic radicals, criminality and clan disputes.
