Russia’s security forces have neutralized five militants in the village of Talgi in Dagestan, the North Caucasus, where a counter-terror operation regime was imposed on Saturday, a law enforcement source told Russian media. “A house in the village of Talgi not far from Makhachkala [Dagestan’s capital] where the militants were hiding was blockaded. They responded with fire to the suggestion to surrender. Five militants were neutralized,” the source said, adding that the number of killed militants is likely to rise. Their identities are currently being established. The counter-terror operation regime has been reportedly put on hold until Sunday morning.
