Vyacheslav Gasanov, a
spokesman for the ministry’s branch in Dagestan, said the clash occurred
Saturday when unidentified gunmen opened fire on police conducting a
security sweep.

They killed one policeman and wounded three
others. Police fired back, killing three attackers. Another two
militants took cover in a private house, but were also eventually killed
by security forces.

The Caspian Sea province has become the
epicenter of an Islamic insurgency that spread across the region after
two separatist wars in Chechnya. Shootings, bombings and police security
raids occur on daily basis in Dagestan that borders Chechnya to the
east.
