Two ISIS militants killed in Russia's Kabardino-Balkaria
Two militants, linked to the ISIS terror group (outlawed in Russia), were killed in Russia's Republic of Kabardino-Balkaria after putting up armed resistance to police, the National Anti-Terrorist Committee said.
Overnight to Wednesday, police attempted to stop a car on a Blagoveschinsk-Prokhladnoye road, and two individuals, who had been inside, attacked the officers. In response to the demand to stop, the militants opened fire from automatic rifles and tried to flee the scene.
"During a brief armed clash, two gunmen, who had been inside the car, were fatally wounded," a spokesman for the anti-terror agency said. Their bodies have been identified. "They were linked to the ISIS international terrorist organization," TASS cited him as saying.
