A militant was killed on Friday in a special police operation in Russia's North Caucasus republic of Dagestan, a local police source said.
The militant was killed in a special operation in the city of Derbent. A group of militants has been surrounded in a private house.
"One of the militants has been killed so far," the source said.
Terrorist attacks and shootouts with police are common in Russia's troubled North Caucasus republics, especially in Dagestan and neighboring Chechnya and Ingushetia.
The Kremlin has vowed to clamp down on militant groups in the North Caucasus while stepping up efforts to boost the local economy.
