    A serviceman was killed and another injured in an attack on a military convoy in Russia’s North Caucasus Republic of Dagestan on Friday, a spokesman for the republic’s investigation department said.

     

    "Unidentified gunmen attacked a military convoy in the Khasavyurt District, one person was killed and one injured,” the spokesman said.

     

    The troubled region sees frequent attacks on law enforcement officers and government officials as Moscow continues to battle an Islamist insurgency there. At least 12 militant groups with an estimated strength of about 300 people are believed to be operating in Dagestan.
