Seven suspected militants have been killed by Russian security forces in a shootout in Dagestan’s capital Makhachkala, according to state media.

Russia’s anti-terrorist committee said that those killed were suspected of carrying out a grenade and bomb attack in Makhachkala on Friday. Several people were injured by the blasts outside a restaurant.

The Republic of Dagestan has been plagued by attacks targeting state officials as part of a campaign by militants to create an Islamist state there.
