NAZRAN, August 30. /TASS/. Bomb technicians have neutralized an explosive device found in a car near the mosque in the village of Ali-Yurt in the North Caucasus Republic of Ingushetia, a source in local law-enforcement agencies told TASS on Tuesday.
"It was retrieved, brought to a safe place and destroyed by explosion," the source said.
Unconfirmed reports say that unidentified persons were apparently preparing an attempt on the life of imam of the Ali-Yurt mosque Isa Tsechoyev, one of the most reputable clerics in Ingushetia.
As TASS reported earlier, local residents reported to the law-enforcement agencies last night about a suspicious car parked near the mosque. The area around the mosque was sealed off. People were evacuated from private houses located near the mosque.
The bomb’s power is estimated at 30-50 kg of TNT, the source in the local law-enforcement agencies told TASS.
"The explosive device was disguised as a gas cylinder. According to preliminary data, its power ranged from 30 to 50 kg of TNT," the source said.
