    A counter-terrorism operation regime was imposed early on Monday in a street in Makhachkala, the capital of Russia's North Caucasus Republic of Dagestan, a spokesman for the republic's security service said on Monday.

    The special operation began as police trapped suspected militants in an apartment.

    Russia's North Caucasus republics, in particular Chechnya, Dagestan and Ingushetia, have seen an upsurge of militant violence this year, with frequent attacks on police and officials.
