Islamists shot dead by Russian forces

Security officers shot dead three militants yesterday in Russia’s volatile North Caucasus republic of Dagestan, the epicentre of an Islamist insurgency.

Russia has tightened security in the surrounding region less than a year ahead of the 2014 Winter Olympics, which it is planning to host on the western side of the Caucasus mountains.
