989 Rus vikings entrapped

The Emir Maymun who had hired the Rus vikings as mercenary soldiers refused the demand of a local Muslim imam to hand over the Rus' Viking mercenaries to the imam for either forced conversion to Islam or death penalty. In the turmoil and harsh struggle, Maymun was driven out from the town and forced to surrender the Rus' Vikings to the Muslims, but Maymun came back to attempt free them in 992.
