ASTANA – Kazakhstan’s special service officers negotiated with militants to free two children, but killed the two male militants and the mistress of one of the militants during an operation in Khasavyurt, Dagestan November 7, news media reported November 16.
Kazakh special services acted after learning that suspected Kazakh militant Vadim Kadymov, Ramazan Nurlayev and Zamira Tutusheva were hiding out in the apartment. The security personnel called on Tutusheva’s ex-husband from Atyrau to help during the negotiations, and the children were freed. The ages of the children were not provided.
After releasing the children the militants were not willing to negotiate further and put up resistance, and security officials killed them.
