MOSCOW, July 22 (Itar-Tass) - Two explosive devices were found on Monday near a mosque in the city of Khasavyurt, Russia’s North Caucasian Republic of Dagestan, a spokesman for the National Antiterrorist Committee told Itar-Tass.
“Bomb specialists from the Russian Federal Security Service are working on the site to render harmless two home-made explosive devices planted near a mosque in Khasavyurt,” the spokesman said.
So far, no information is available on the type and the yield of these devices.
Earlier, a spokesman for the republican interior ministry told Itar-Tass that two suspicious-looking parcels had been found near the mosque overnight to Monday.
“A suspicious-looking object was found at 02:45 a.m. Moscow time near the central entrance to a mosque located in Magodov Street. Another such object was found and some 20 meters off the mosque’s wall. The site was cordoned off. Residents of nearby houses were evacuated. Specialists with dogs and sappers have been working at the scene since morning,” the ministry spokesman said.
