"Two armed transgressors moving from Afghanistan were discovered on the section of a Moscow border detachment's outpost. When border guards were trying to detain the criminals, the latter opened fire and hid themselves in the cane area," the FSB press release says.
Upon examination of the clash site, servicemen found two plastic bags with 280,000 dollars inside, the press release says.
As reported earlier, last night border guards engaged in a fight with a group of narcocouriers near a Pyandzh river crossing. Three violators were killed. No victims among Russian servicemen are reported.
