Russia: Powerful Bomb Defused In North Caucasus


Demining specialists have defused a “powerful” bomb in the restive North Caucasus republic of Ingushetia, a police spokesman said on Saturday.

The homemade explosive device was discovered on the outskirts of Ingushetia’s northern city of Malgobek.
No one was hurt in the operation.

The spokesman could not specify on the power of the bomb.

Militant attacks targeting security forces and officials are common in the North Caucasus republics of Ingushetia, Dagestan and Chechnya.
