Suicide bomb attack in Dagestan


In Dagestan in the Russian Caucasus at least five people have been killed and 39 injured in a suicide bomb attack.

The target was a military camp near the city of Buynaksk. The driver detonated the bomb after going through the gates of the camp.

The deaths on Sunday morning come within 24 hours of a senior Russian official in Dagestan being injured. The regional minister had just left his home when a bomb exploded. His driver was killed and two guards injured.

Sunday morning’s incident in Buynaksk comes almost 11 years to the day after a similar attack in the city when 68 people were killed and more than 150 injured. Then a suicide bomber targeted a building where army families were living.

Violence from Islamist extremists has increased in Dagestan with government officials, police and army the targets. No group has claimed responsibility for these latest two attacks.
