Suspected ISIS terrorists reported killed in Siberian city

Alleged ISIS followers have been killed in the course of a counterterrorism operation in the Siberian city of Tyumen, Interfax reported.

During a search conducted on the night of April 12, the suspects attacked security agents, who returned fire and killed them. The number of deaths that resulted from the encounter has not yet been reported. An Interfax source previously mentioned that officials were searching for two suspects.

The neighborhood in Tyumen where the operation took place was locked down and evacuated. Gunshots and a fire were reported nearby, though the fire was later extinguished. Residents have been housed in a local lyceum, where they will presumably remain overnight.
