5 rebels, 1 officer killed in Russia's Caucasus

Authorities in Russia's unstable Caucasus region say five separatist rebels and a policeman have been killed in in a gunbattle.
Tuesday's clash on the border between the provinces of Karachayeva-Cherkessia and Stavropol in the west of the Caucasus region follows Monday's suicide bombing in the eastern Dagestan province that killed a soldier and wounded six others.
Two regional police officials confirmed Tuesday's clash. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly on the matter.
