Dagestan: 237 persons suffered from armed conflict in the second quarter of 2012

In April, May and June 2012, in the territory of Dagestan, at least 237 persons suffered from the armed conflict in Northern Caucasus; of whom 102 persons were killed and 135 more wounded. These are the results of calculations of the "Caucasian Knot", based on its own materials and information from open sources.

The second quarter of 2012 claimed lives of 33 power agents and 61 persons, involved, according to law enforcement bodies, in the armed underground. Besides, eight civilians were killed.

The list of those wounded includes 92 power agents, 41 civilians and two militants.
