MOSCOW, October 22 (Itar-Tass). — A terrorist act was averted in the Russian North Caucasus republic of Dagestan, as a strong bomb was planted not far from the trading centre. “Local residents have found a suspicious object in the form of a 12-litre basket at about 8 a.m. Moscow time on Tuesday in the town of Khasavyurt, 300 meters away from a police post on the Makhachkalinskoye highway (near the trading centre Kirgu),” the information centre of the National Anti-Terrorism Committee told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.
