11 killed in latest suicide blasts in Russia

By The Assam Tribune

MOSCOW, March 31 (PTI) - Two suicide bombers, including one in the garb of a policeman, today set off powerful blasts in Russia's volatile North Caucasus region of Dagestan, killing at least 11 people and injuring scores, just a couple of days after the terror attacks on Moscow metro claimed 39 lives.

Among the dead in today's attacks in the town of Kizlyar was the local police chief Vitaly Vedernikov, Interfax news agency reported.

The first blast took place at around 8.30 am (1000 HRS IST) when a car parked on a street near a school and packed with explosives was blown up by its driver.

However, there were no children in the school. Three cars parked nearby were gutted.

As police officers and residents gathered at the scene, there was a second blast half an hour later by a man who was wearing police uniform.
