The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that the attack on policemen was committed at night of May 12. As a result, policeman was wounded and two attackers were killed, including Magomed Bekbuzarov, who was wanted for involvement in an attack on a police patrol car in Malgobek on April 8, the law enforcement agencies report. According to the preliminary information, the second killed suspect was Adam Magmadov, a native of Chechnya.
