A suspected terrorist who was planning an attack was killed in a counter-terror operation in Makhachkala in the North Caucasus Republic of Dagestan, the Russian National Anti-Terror Committee’s information centre told TASS on Thursday. 

"In the course of a counter-terror operation on March 11 to frustrate preparations for committing a terror attack in Dagestan, a militant who put up armed resistance was neutralised. An assault rifle, a large amount of ammunition for it and an improvised ‘suicide bomber’s belt’ ready for use were found at the site of the shootout," the National Anti-Terror Committee said.
