Teacher killed in Dagestan

Last night a professor of the pedagogical college was shot in the city of Khasavyurt in Dagestan - Russian media reports.

As it became known, unknown men attacked psychology professor Sultanakhmed Shagaev near his house and fired several shots at him. The man with gunshot wounds in different parts of the body was taken to central hospital, where he died without regaining consciousness.

Motives for the killing of the professor are not entirely clear. However, as experts suggest, Shagaev fell victim of militants, as he did not approve of calls of extremists for jihad and condemned their actions.
