Insurgents carry out almost daily attacks in the patchwork
of small, mostly Muslim regions along the country’s southern

in Chechnya, Ingushetia and Dagestan further southeast.

Preliminary reports indicated that police killed seven
militants, two of them women, state-run RIA news agency quoted
an unidentified police official as saying.

themselves inside a private house in the provincial capital,
Nalchik, and exchanged fire with law enforcement officers.
