MOSCOW, January 2 (RIA Novosti) – Two militants were killed by the Russian security forces in the republic of Dagestan in the North Caucasus on Thursday following an anti-terror operation, the authorities said.

“The active phase of the special operation is complete and two members of the armed group have been liquidated,” a security force source told RIA Novosti.
