Gunmen killed an imam on his way to morning prayers in a restive southern region Saturday, a day after spoke out against Islamic extremists, police said. Nurmagomed Gadzhimagomedov was shot by attackers in a car while walking from his home to his mosque in the Dagestani settlement of Gudben, district police chief Sergei Makukha said. Gadzhimagomedov was a vocal critic of Islamic extremism who had spoken out against militants during a service at the mosque on Friday, Makukha said. He said the killing was "clearly a revenge attack" by Islamic militants.
