Russia: Suicide Bomber Kills Policeman In Dagestan

Posted by Info on 10/05/2011

A suicide bomber killed one police officer in the capital of Russia’s violence-plagued Dagestan region in the North Caucasus on Tuesday, an official said. He detonated explosives strapped to his body when police tried to stop him at an intersection to check his documents.
The blast killed one police officer and wounded another.

In those days Dagestan is considered the heart of the insurgency. It has seen some of the worst violence, including clashes that killed nine on Sunday.

In the nearby Kabardino-Balkaria province, four alleged Islamist militants were killed by security forces on Tuesday, Russian news agencies reported.
