(Reuters) – A suicide bomb went off near the police headquarters in a town in Russia’s North Caucasus region of Ingushetia killing at least one policemen, a spokesman for the local interior ministry said on Monday.
“According to preliminary information a suicide bomber set off an explosion outside the town’s police station. At least one policeman was killed and others were injured,” the spokesman said.
The explosion in Karabulak, around 20 km from the regional capital Magas, follows a spate of suicide attacks in Moscow and the region of Dagestan in the Caucasus that killed 50 people over the past week.
