MOSCOW, November 24, 13:45 /ITAR-TASS/. A man, who blew up as he was installing an explosive device in Makhachkala /capital city of Dagestan/, had participated in terrorist crimes, including in the bus explosion in Volgograd.
The explosion occurred on Saturday night in Makhachkala. The National Anti-Terror Committee said the man had aimed at blowing up the police.
