Five militants were also killed not far from Nalchik:

Five militants have been killed and one detained in the city of Chegem, 15 kilometers away from Nalchik, a source in the local law-enforcement agencies said Friday.

According to the source, militants attacked police from Chegem Thursday and then tried to escape. They were found in a cornfield and killed.
