A police source told RIA Novosti the battle broke out in the North Caucasus republic of Dagestan Thursday night when police trapped four members of a terrorist group in a house in the village of Kirovaul.

The militants opened fire when police demanded their surrender.

"According to preliminary information, four militants, including a woman, were killed. The identity of one of the militants has already been established," the source said.

Terrorist attacks are common in Russia's North Caucasus republics, including Dagestan and Chechnya, but most target security forces or officials. The Kremlin has pledged to stamp out the attacks while improving regional economies.
