'Gunmen' kill 3 police in Karachay-Cherkessia
"Gunmen" have killed three policemen in the normally peaceful north Caucasus republic of Karachay-Cherkessia, Russian news agencies reported on Friday.

Interfax news agency quoted a regional police official saying unknown gunmen followed the three traffic police into a cafe, shot them, then ran away.

Throughout Russia's north Caucasus republics, which includes North Ossetia, Kabardino-Balkaria, Ingushetia, Dagestan and Chechnya, groups of "gunmen" have begun killing police and former security forces over the past few months.
