MOSCOW, October 31 (Itar-Tass) - The identity of two perpetrators of the recent bomb explosions in Makhachkala, the capital of the Republic of Dagestan in the North Caucasus, has been established, Vladimir Markin, an official spokesperson of the Russian Investigation Committee, told Itar-Tass.
They are Magomedrasul Shakhbanov, 22, and Makhmud Aliev, 24. Both are members of the Makhachkala terrorist group. Police are trying to establish their whereabouts to detain the suspects and their accomplices, Markin went on to say.
Two explosions roared with a short interval on Dakhadayev Street in the center of Makhachkala last Wednesday. One person was killed and another 18, including six policemen, were injured, the Dagestani Interior Ministry said in previous reports.
Investigators continue working at the blast site.
All video recordings have been removed from external surveillance cameras installed on buildings located in the vicinity of the blast site, Markin said.
According to previous reports, the yield of one explosive device was equivalent to about 4 kilograms of TNT.
