Russia: Once Again Suicide Bomber In Dagestan

Posted by Info on 05/09/2010

Once again at least five people were killed and 35 wounded on Sunday.
A small Zhiguli sedan laden with about 220 pounds of explosives smashed through a gate and onto a firing range where the Russian army’s 136th Motorcycle Brigade had set up camp outside the town of Buinaksk.

Soldiers blocked the car’s path with a truck, preventing what authorities said would have been a higher death toll had the bomber reached the tents where hundreds of soldiers were sleeping. The explosion occurred as the car slammed into the truck at about 1 a.m., the Interior Ministry said.
