Russia: Doku Umarov associate killed during firefight in Dagestan

Russia's National Anti-Terrorism Committee (NAC) reported that a close aid of one of Russia's most wanted men, Doku Umarov, was killed during an operation by Russian law enforcement officers in Dagestan on Saturday. The slain man was identified as 23-year-old Islam Atiev.

The confrontation between Russian forces and militants hiding in a house in the region's Petrovskoye settlement ended with a blast in the building, according to Interfax. It was not immediately whether Atiev died in the explosion, or whether the two other militants were killed or captured.

Doku Umarov, who operates in the Russian North Caucasus, is believed to be responsible for several high-profile attacks in Russia, including the bombing of a Moscow airport in 2011 and the bombing of the Moscow Metro in 2010. He was designated as a terrorist by the United States in 2010. The United Nations Security Council included him on its terrorist list in 2011.
