    Two policemen were wounded in a shootout in the Russian North Caucasus republic of Dagestan, a law enforcement source reported.

    The incident occurred late on Friday in the town of Izberbash. Police officers stopped a car, but people inside it opened fire and escaped.

    An investigation is underway.

    Attacks on police and officials are frequent in Russia's volatile North Caucasus republics as the federal authorities have been clamping down on militant groups while stepping up efforts to boost the local economies.
