    Several Daesh-linked militants were detained and explosives were found during a special operation in Russia's North Caucasus Republic of Dagestan.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The Russian law enforcement agencies have detained a group of Daesh-linked militants who have been preparing terrorist attacks in Russia's North Caucasus Republic of Dagestan, the National Anti-Terrorism Committee (NAK) said Thursday.

    "Three militants associated with the Daesh terrorist group outlawed in Russia have been detained by the law enforcement officers. They plead guilty and told about a hidden arms cache in an abandoned house in the outskirts of the village," a statement issued by the NAK reads.

    The committee added that it found four explosive devices as well as about a metric ton of explosives in the cache.
