    Chechen rebel leader Doku Umarov 'dead'

    The leader of the Chechen rebels, Doku Umarov, has died, according to Kavkaz Center, the main website of Russia's Islamist militants.

    The website said the Caucasus Emirate leader "became a martyr", but no further details were given.

    There has been no official confirmation from the Russian authorities.

    The militant group has claimed responsibility for a string of deadly attacks in Russia in the last few years.

    Most wanted
    A spokesman for Russia's national anti-terrorism body was quoted by Russian state news agency RIA as saying he could not confirm Mr Umarov was dead, Reuters reports.

    The Kavkaz Center website wrote on its Twitter account that Ali Abu-Mukhammad had been chosen as the new emir by the Caucasus Emirate.

    The website is seen as sympathetic to Islamist militants fighting against Russian rule in the North Caucasus.

    In the past, it has used the line about "becoming a martyr" both for people who were killed and for Islamist militants who died of natural causes, so it is not clear if Doku Umarov died peacefully or if he was killed, says Artyom Liss, head of BBC Russian.

    Over the last few years, the Russian authorities have announced his killing several few times.

    He has often recorded video statements just days after his alleged killing by the Russian forces, our correspondent says.

    The self-styled emir of the Caucasus Emirate is one of Russia's most wanted rebels.

    He has claimed to have ordered the January 2011 Moscow airport bombing that killed 36 people, and the March 2010 suicide bombings in the Moscow Metro, in which 39 people died.

    He is also said to have ordered the November 2009 bombing of a train from Moscow to St Petersburg that left 26 dead.

    Mr Umarov also urged his fighters to target the Winter Olympic Games, which recently took place in the Black Sea resort of Sochi.

    Russia has been battling Islamist insurgents, who are seeking to carve an emirate out of Russia's mostly Muslim southern Caucasus provinces, for years.

    Generally I don't cheer on our "FSB successes" in Kavkaz, as it just illustrates a situation that is not improving, and generally it just seems stupid to me (see Americans chanting in front of the White House after they got OBL- I can't be the only one who cringed at that).

    He murdered people to get what he wanted... so he is no different from most political leaders around the place... the difference is that he uses violence to promote his cause... using hate as a weapon... of course he will be replaced, but that is no reason to not get rid of him when you get the chance...

    FSB confirms Chechen militant leader Doku Umarov neutralized

    SOCHI, April 10. /ITAR-TASS/Mikhail Klimentyev. The operation to neutralize the activity of Chechen warlord Doku Umarov was carried out back at the end of 2013, head of the Russian Federal Security Service Alexander Bortnikov told reporters on Thursday.

    He said reports about the success of the operation had not been circulated for a number of reasons. “Initially, information was leaked into press from other sources. We did not say anything about this, pursuing certain goals of operational and political nature,” the FSB head said.

    “The only thing I can say for the moment is that the work I have said about was done at the end of the previous year. It is still early to speak about its results. Time will come and we will inform the public about what was done and how it was done,” Bortnikov said.

    At a session of the National Antiterrorism Committee on Tuesday, Bortnikov said the activity of the head of the terrorist organization Imrat Kavkaz, Doku Umarov, had been ‘neutralized’.

    Doku Umarov was the mastermind of terrorist acts in the North Caucasus and their active participant. He was on the wanted list on charges of staging numerous terrorist acts, kidnappings, murders and other grave crimes.

    In particular, he claimed responsibility for the explosion of the Nevsky Express speed train in 2009 when 28 people were killed, as well as for the March 2010 terror acts in Moscow’s metro underground railway system that claimed the lives of 40 people.

    The investigation believes that he was the mastermind of a suicide bombing at Moscow’s Domodedovo airport on January 24, 2011, which killed 35 people.

    The attacking group consisted of approx. 20 people, mostly in their teens and 20s. It was actually one of the LARGEST groups of insurgents in all of Caucasus. Shocked Training 1 terrorist, 2, 5, 10 - but 20? Shocked  The scale of western conspiracy is simply unimaginable. Shocked

    Calm down a little bit, my fellow forum users. The entire "Caucasus Emirate" now accounts to how many men? 200? 300?

    American media is trying their best to Scare American citizens about the threat of ISIS.. that they are more
    dangerous than Alqaeda..and that it is neccesary for US army to act.. and fight them in Syria. Rolling Eyes
    Is the same thing of 9/11 , that time it was Alqaeda the danger .. and suddenly now Alqaeda doesn't matter.
    Now any islamic fighter in the world western governments call them ISIS.. and not knowing how their government
    are the hands that feed the terrorist and support them.. The ISIS leader was in a US prison and released so he could fight in Syria.. and now MCAIN expect the world to believe that he or neither the US government knew who he was.
    When a photo show up , of MCCAIN meeting with ISIS leader when he visit Syria and other terrorist groups.

    Russian forces kill over 250 militants in North Caucasus in 2014 — interior minister

    MOSCOW, March 25. /TASS/. Russian security forces killed more than 250 militants in the volatile North Caucasus region last year and detained over 400 members of illegal armed groups and their allies, Interior Minister Vladimir Kolokoltsev said on Wednesday.

    "Our special task is to work together with the Russian Federal Security Service (FSB) to counteract terrorism and the most serious forms of extremism," Kolokoltsev told "government hour" in the Federation Council, Russia's upper house of parliament.

    "In 2014, more than 250 armed group members were eliminated as a result of cooperative activities and joint special operations in the North Caucasus Federal District. Over 400 members of illegal military formations and their allies were detained," he said.

    Cooperation with investigation and prosecution agencies, and the FSB, made it possible to clamp down on eight extremist groups and two terrorist organisations, the minister said.

    More than 350 publications deemed extremist were included in the Federal List of Extremist Materials. This contained more than 1,000 items, mostly related to banned religious and ultra-nationalist groups or those deemed to have a fascist ideology.

    Tens of thousands of banned extremist materials, including over 85,000 flags, symbols and attributes, were seized during investigative operations, he added.

    Over the past 10 years, Russian law enforcement authorities had consistently revealed manifestations of extremist behaviour, Kolokoltsev said, noting more than 1,000 incidents recorded last year.

    "The number of perpetrators identified has grown by a quarter," he said, adding that most crimes and offences related to extremist activity had been detected over the Internet.

    The number of extremist-related crimes revealed increased by 39% last year, the minister said. "More than 2,000 pieces of online extremist material were removed from the Web," he said. "Over 700 websites were blocked. About 1,000 people were brought to justice."

    War on terror in Russia's Dagestan: 160 gunmen eliminated by security forces in 2014

    During investigative operations, 232 members of illegal armed groups were detained and 11 surrendered

    MAKHACHKALA, March 26. /TASS/. More than 160 gunmen who offered resistance to security forces were wiped out in the North Caucasus Republic of Dagestan last year, Dagestan’s Interior Minister Abdurashid Magomedov said on Thursday.

    "Security forces prevented 20 acts of sabotage and terrorist attacks with the use of explosive devices… They eliminated 161 gunmen who maintained resistance. During investigative operations, 232 members of illegal armed groups were detained and 11 surrendered," Magomedov told a session of the People’s Assembly of Dagestan.

    According to Magomedov, last year security forces in Dagestan discovered and destroyed 16 trench shelters and 8 temporary camps of illegal armed groups, 62 hideouts with weapons, ammunition, explosive devices, food and personal belongings.

    "As a result of terrorist attacks 24 people were killed, including two civilians, 75 others were wounded, among them 7 civilians," the minister said, adding that 103 attacks on law enforcement officers were registered last year (compared to 185 in 2013).

    Magomedov noted that the total number of terrorist crimes in Dagestan grew in 2014 amounting to 472 (compared to 365 in 2013). The number of extremist crimes grew as well, totaling 50 (compared to 24 in 2013).

    Several leaders of int’l terrorist organizations presumably blocked in Buinaksk suburb

    MOSCOW, April 19. /TASS/. An active phase of a special operation has been resumed in a suburb of Buinaksk in Russia’s North Caucasian Republic of Dagestan, which several leaders of international terrorist organizations presumable blocked in a private house, a spokesman for the National Anti-terrorist Committee told TASS on Sunday.

    "According to preliminary data, among the gunmen blocked in a private house are a number of leaders of an international terrorist organization," the spokesman said.

    The active phase of the special operation was suspended after dark. But after a powerful explosion had rocked the house and gunfire had been opened at the police from the windows, the counter-terrorist operation was resumed.

    "The gunmen were not let leave the house. Two of them were neutralized," the spokesman said, adding that the special operation would be completed in the morning.

    Earlier on Sunday, Russia’s Federal Security Service received information that a group of armed men was hiding in a private house in Buinaksk’s Gerei-Avlak suburb.

    The National Anti-terrorist Committee’s Dagestan chief took a decision to launch an anti-terrorist operation on Sunday morning to prevent acts of terror and ensure security of civilians.

    The house was blocked by security and police officers. Residents of neighboring houses were evacuated. Along with the gunmen, there were two women and a child inside the house. After negotiations with the police, terrorists blocked in the house released the child but refused to surrender weapons. The women refused to leave the house.

    Militant leader killed in Dagestan

    MAKHACHKALA, June 6. /TASS/. A local militant leader was killed early Saturday in the Russian North Caucasus republic of Dagestan, Russia’s National Antiterrorism Committee (NAC) said Saturday.

    The NAC said the militant was preliminarily identified as the leader of a militant group that acted in the Khasavyurt District, Suleiman Zainalobidov, born in 1979.

    "According to the NAC operational headquarters in Dagestan, Zainalobidov has been in hiding for over 10 years, and last December he swore allegiance to the international terrorist organization IS [Islamic State]," the NAC said.

    Zainalobidov is believed to have been directly involved in attacks on law enforcement officers, in particular in the murder in December 2013 of a regional Federal Security Service (FSB) Department officer, as well as extortion of money from entrepreneurs.

    During this night’s check of cars at a road near the locality of Michurino near Khasavyurt, FSB and Interior Ministry units tried to stop a VAZ-2109 car.

    "The driver did not obey the lawful demands of law enforcers, opened fire from automatic weapons and tried to escape. He was neutralized by return fire," a NAC spokesman said.

    No law enforcers or civilians are reported to have been killed or injured.

    "During an inspection of the gunfight site, a considerable arsenal was found with the bandit: eight grenades, two assault rifles, a handgun, ten magazines for the rifles and three for the handgun, as well as several sets of car license plates issued in three different regions," he said.

    An investigation is underway.

    Russia’s law enforcement agencies continue fighting militants in the North Caucasus over 14 years since the battle phase of the second war against Islamist separatists in Chechnya came to an end in 2000. Attacks on security officials and civilians occur from time to time in Dagestan, Ingushetia and Kabardino-Balkaria.

    Special Forces buy their own personal weapons to use, surely not a decision most would go with buying some horrible weapon designs for such specific role.

    Three suspected militants killed in shootout with police in Dagestan

    Overnight to Monday, police officers tried to stop a vehicle for a check, but unknown assailants riding in the car opened fire, which injured a police officer

    MAKHACHKALA, August 24. /TASS/. Three suspected militants have been killed in a shootout with police near Makhachkala, the capital of Russia’s North Caucasus republic of Dagestan, a law enforcement source said.

    The source said one policeman was injured.

    Overnight to Monday, police officers tried to stop a vehicle for a check, but unknown assailants riding in the car opened fire, which injured a police officer.

    "The three men inside the car were killed by return fire," the source said.

    The developments occurred in the village of Novy Khushet, where a counterterrorism operation regime was imposed on Sunday.

    Russia’s law enforcement agencies continue fighting militants in the North Caucasus over 14 years since the battle phase of the second war against Islamist separatists in Chechnya came to an end in 2000.
