    Russian security forces have killed four militants in the troubled southern republic of Dagestan.

    Russian security forces have killed four militants in the troubled southern republic of Dagestan, Russia’s Anti-Terror Committee said on Saturday.

    The men were shot dead after security forces raided a home in the village of Gurbuki late on Friday.

    One member of the security forces was killed in the gun battle and another wounded, officials said.

    Russia has been battling a low-level Islamist insurgency in the region.

    Earlier this month, officials said up to 300 militans were operating in Dagestan.
