    Ten insurgents were killed in a security operation in southern Russia on the border of Stavropol Territory and the Republic of Kabardino-Balkaria, the Russian Investigative Committee said on Friday.

    There were no casualties among security forces or civilians.

    Security forces sealed off a suspected group of "members of an illegal armed formation" in a private house and ordered them to surrender.

    They refused and opened fire at security forces.

    More than a decade after the end of a war against separatists in Russia's North Caucasus republic of Chechnya, Russian security forces continue to fight militants in other regions in the area besides Chechnya, including Kabardino-Balkaria, Ingushetia, Dagestan, and North Ossetia. Frequent attacks are staged on security forces, police and civilians.
