MAKHACHKALA, January 8 (Itar-Tass) — Federal Security Service sappers in Dagestan have destroyed a powerful explosive device placed in a car.
Sappers with the use of a hydrodynamic device destroyed a homemade explosive device -- a bucket filled with nine kilogrammes of mixture of ammonium nitrate and aluminum powder with a homemade detonator, a source at the operational headquarters of the Russian National Antiterrorist Committee in Dagestan told Itar-Tass.
The Vaz-2107 car with forged numbers was found in a forest three km away from the village of Nechayevka in the Kizilyurt district on Saturday evening. The homemade bomb and two sacks of ammonium nitrate weighing about 30 kilogrammes were found in the car. The site was cordoned off until the morning.
Other state registration number plates were also found in the car.
An inquiry is underway to establish who is the owner of the car and who placed the bomb in it.
