Russian security forces kill five in a counterterrorism operation in the North Caucasus

Russian security forces have killed five people under investigation for terrorism during an operation in the North Caucasus region.

“Five bandits have been annihilated in a shootout,” the National Anti-Terrorist Committee said in a statement collected by the Russian news agency Interfax.

The operation took place near the city of Kalchik, the capital of the Russian republic of Kabardino-Balkaria, against members of an organization that planned a terrorist attack and were hiding on the outskirts of the city.

According to the committee, neither civilians nor members of the anti-terrorist forces have been injured in the assault, which began after “these bandits ignored orders to surrender and began to open fire on the security forces.”
