Suicide Bomber Dressed As Policeman In Russia’s Dagestan

Posted by Info on 31/03/2010

A suicide bomber dressed as policeman is responsible for one of the blasts in Russia’s North Caucasus republic of Dagestan.

At least nine people including the local police chief were killed and six others were injured in two explosions in the town of Kizlyar on Wednesday morning. The blast occurred in a parking lot near a school.
The suicide bomber struck as a team of investigators was working at the scene of the first explosion.

SOME HISTORY: The North Caucasus region is the part of Russia that slopes up towards the main ridge of the Caucasus mountains, often considered the border between Europe and Asia. It is home to dozens of nationalities and languages, many of which have troubled relationships with their neighbours or with central governments in Moscow or Tbilisi.
