This evening, law enforcers have cancelled the counterterrorist operation (CTO) legal regime, which was earlier introduced within a single section of the Buynaksk and Karabudakhkent Districts of Dagestan.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that at 1:00 Moscow time of January 17, the CTO legal regime was introduced in two districts of Dagestan. According to an official of the Dagestani Operational Headquarters of the National Antiterrorist Committee (NAC), law enforcers were searching for militants and their accomplices.
