Text of report by Azerbaijani news agency Turan
Baku, 27 October: The National Security Ministry carried out a special operation against a group of armed people in country house No 104 in the settlement of Mastaqa [near Baku] this morning. Two men were arrested and one was killed while putting up armed resistance, Turan has learnt from informed sources.
When proposed to give himself up, one of those inside the house threw a grenade at special squad soldiers and then was gunned down. Three assault rifles, several grenades and other ammunition were discovered at the country house during the search.
According to preliminary information, the criminals were Wahhabis and were not residents of the settlement. It is noteworthy that one of the impounded assault rifles was the one which had been stolen from a military unit by fugitive officer Kamran Asadov, who is also a Wahhabi.
The prosecutor's office has started an investigation into the case.

“the criminals were Wahhabis”
Considering the source, this is an attempt to separate Wahhabism from Islam.
It’s interesting to note that the conflagration that began the novel “Red Storm Rising”, by Tom Clancy, was perpetrated by Islamofascists, on a Russian oil facility in one of the ‘republics’. I’ll have to go back and read that one again.
