MAKHACHKALA, January 1. /TASS/. Two residents of the village of Kharachi in Russia’s North Caucasus republic of Dagestan have been detained on suspicion of blowing up a police vehicle convoy on December 12, 2014, Dagestan’s Interior Ministry reported.
Law enforcers said the suspects pleaded guilty.
“On December 31, 2014, law enforcement officers established and took to a police station two residents of the village of Kharachi. They pleaded guilty,” a ministry spokesman said. He said another two accomplices of the crime are on a federal wanted list.
According to law enforcers, on December 12, 2014, a bomb exploded when a police convoy was passing the 4th kilometer of the Vremenny-Shamilkala highway. No injuries or damage were reported.
Russia’s law enforcement agencies continue fighting militants in Dagestan over 13 years since the battle phase of the second war against Islamist separatists in the neighboring Chechnya came to an end in 2000. Attacks on security officials and civilians occur from time to time in Dagestan, Ingushetia and Kabardino-Balkaria.
