Law enforcers: suspects killed in North Ossetia involved in plotting terror act

Four persons killed in North Ossetia were plotting a terror act, including possibly outside of Russia. This was reported by an officer, involved in a special operation.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that on September 6, law enforcers killed three men near the Chmi village in the Zaterechny District of Vladikavkaz. Later, another man was killed. According to the law enforcement agencies, he was a native of Dagestan, a member of the terrorist organization "Islamic State" (IS) banned in Russia.

According to the officer, law enforcers are now engaged in finding out how the IS supporters entered the republic.

The law enforcer has specified that civilians could not enter the zone of the counterterrorist operation (CTO), since all approaches to the village "had been securely blocked." There are a little more than 100 houses in the village, and the special operation was carried out in a forest.
