MAKHACHKALA, September 23 (Itar-Tass) – The car bomb which went off near a police precinct in the settlement of Khuchni in Dagestan has claimed two lives; nine people were injured.
The blast occurred early Monday. According to a representative of the Interior Ministry, “a car with a terrorist was moving near a local police precinct, then it sharply turned towards the building and exploded”. “It did not drive into the territory of the police precinct, but exploded near a two-storey building under construction,” the source added.
Dagestan republic’s Investigative Committee reports that nine nearby cars were damaged by the blast. “A team of investigators is working at the scene; everything is down to identify the suicide bomber,” the Committee’s representative told Itar-Tass.
According to the press service of Dagestan’s Interior Ministry, one policeman and one officer of the Federal Migration Service died in the explosion.
Previously the Investigative Committee said that “the blast occurred not near the local police precinct itself, but at the so-called resident registration office”.
