MAKHACHKALA, Russia - Four suspected militants, three policemen and three mountain guides were killed in a shootout in Russia's restive North Caucasus province of Dagestan, local police said on Wednesday.

The shootout occurred on Tuesday during a random patrol of a woody and mountainous area some 50 km south of the regional capital Makhachkala.

The guides are helping police to secure the areas adjacent to Makhachkala, where the rough terrain provides hideouts for Islamist insurgents.
