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.
