Two Militant ‘Warlords’ Killed in Dagestan

Law enforcement officers eliminated in separate raids alleged leaders of two insurgency groups in the North Caucasian republic of Dagestan on Wednesday, the National Anti-Terrorism Committee said.

Magomed “Al-Bara” Abdusalamov was blocked and shot dead near the village of Khuchni with no casualties among the law enforcements, the committee’s press service said.

Abdusalamov, the alleged head of the so-called “Izberbash gang,” was transporting in his car a powerful bomb made from a 100-liter barrel filled with explosives, which was defused by a bomb squad, the report said.

Elsewhere in the republic, police shot dead Nazhmudin “Abu-Zeit” Nazhmudinov, the supposed leader of the “Tsumada gang,” the report said.

A policeman was killed and two others wounded during the shootout, along with Nazhmudinov’s female supporter Zarema Ramadanova, who also fired at the officers, the committee said.
