Police in Russia's North Caucasus republic of Dagestan have discovered a militant base containing ammunition, clothes and food, a local police source said on Friday.
"A militant base was discovered in the forest some two kilometers from the village of Gergental. Police confiscated over 200 cartridges of various gauge, seven detonators, camouflage fatigues, medicine and nourishment products," the source said.
Sporadic terrorist attacks and militant clashes are common in Russia's largely Muslim North Caucasus republics, especially Dagestan, Chechnya and Ingushetia.
A freight train was derailed on July 2 by a blast on a railroad in Dagestan's Karabudakhkentsky district, near the republic's capital, Makhachkala. The train driver and his assistant were injured.
