Gunmen attack in RussssuaGunmen opened fire at places of worship across two cities in Russia's North Caucasus region of Dagestan on Sunday, killing multiple people, including an Orthodox priest and police officers, officials said.

The gunmen opened fire at synagogues, churches and a police post in the cities of Makhachkala and Derbent in the Republic of Dagestan − a predominantly Muslim region along the Caspian Sea, authorities said. The exact number of gunmen and victims involved in the attacks was not immediately clear.

Dagestan's Gov. Sergei Melikov said in a video statement early Monday that six of the gunmen had been “liquidated" in the two cities. The National Anti-Terrorist Committee said five attackers were “eliminated," Russian state news agencies reported.
