Police major, 2 rebels killed in Russian Caucasus

Russian authorities say a police major and two rebels have been killed in the country's violence-plagued Caucasus region.
The regional Interior Ministry in Dagestan says a police major was killed late Monday by gunmen who attacked him at his home in the village of Kulzeb.
In neighboring Chechnya, authorities say a rebel was killed Monday as police tried to detain him in the village of Makhketi.
Russia news agencies also reported that a rebel suspected of being one of the gunmen who killed two police officers Monday, was shot dead Tuesday in Chechnya.
Chechnya and neighboring Caucasus republics see frequent small clashes between separatists and police and soldiers.
