Russian forces storm house, militant killed
Security forces move into position.
Strategically placed to flush out militants, they say, are holed up in a house in southern Russia.
With guns blazing, Russia’s National anti-terrorism committee says they killed one militant. But not without a wounded casualty on their side.
A spokesman says firearms and ammunition were found and taken away.
But the search for more continues.
This, after yet another battle to curb an insurgency by militants in the North Caucasus, a patchwork of mainly Muslim republics on Russia’s southern rim.
