For several days after the suppression of the revolt 82 foreign mercenaries hid themselves in the vaults of the Kalai-Banghi fortress. They were forced to leave their refuge only after icy water had been thrown to the basement, reports the Online news agency. Among those who surrendered were Afghan Talibs, Arabs - citizens of Yemen and Saudi Arabia, Chechens and Pakistanis. One fighter said he was a citizen of the United States.
