Three suspected rebels were killed on Saturday in an exchange of fire with police in Dagestan in Russia's volatile North Caucasus region, the Interfax news agency reported.

The number two in the Dagestani rebel movement was killed in the clash that took place in the Kizlyar region, a local security official was cited as saying.

Concerns have mounted over increased militant attacks throughout Russia's Caucasus region, where Islamist militants have been battling pro-Kremlin local authorities and Russian security forces in a sporadic insurgency.
