A huge amount of ammunition has been found in a forest located not far from the administrative border with the republic of Daghestan.

As was reported on Monday in the Joint Group of Forces in the North Caucasus, officers of the Novolaksk district (Daghestan) Criminal Investigation Department had found the cache during a search operation. The cache contained 35 mines, 7kg of TNT, 8 clips for the Kalashnikov assault rifle and more than 4,000 cartridges of various calibre.

Police officers think that militants were planning to transport the explosives to Daghestan to commit terror acts.
