Four reported dead in Dagestan gunbattle


A fierce gunbattle has taken place between suspected rebels and soldiers in the southern Russian region of Dagestan. Local TV reports say four gunmen were killed in the shootout in a residential area of Dagestan’s capital, Makhachkala.

Commentators say reports of gunfights and attacks by rebels have increased in recent months, raising fears the Chechen conflict has spread to neighbouring provinces.

Weapons and local maps were also found in another suspected rebel hideout in Makhachkala on Wednesday night.
