Police in Russia’s restive southern province of Dagestan say that seven policemen have been wounded by militants.
Local police spokesman Vyacheslav Gasanov said that several gunmen drove to a police precinct in the town of Kizilyurt late Monday. They sprayed the building with automatic gunfire and then detonated a car bomb, which shattered windows and damaged the roof.
In a separate incident Tuesday, police shot and killed three suspected militants on the outskirts of the provincial capital, Makhachkala.
Dagestan and other provinces in Russia’s North Caucasus have been destabilized by an Islamic insurgency that has spread across the region following two separatist wars in nearby Chechnya.
Dagestan has emerged as the main base for Islamic militants, who launch near daily attacks on police and other authorities.
