Five killed, 39 injured in Dagestan suicide bombing: Report

A suicide bombing at a military installation in Dagestan killed five people and wounded 39.

Moscow: A suicide bombing at a military
installation in Russia`s volatile North Caucasus region of
Dagestan killed five people on Sunday and wounded 39, Ria Novosti
news agency said, citing a top security source.

A suicide bomber attacked a base of a special military
motorcycle squad at Dalny near the city of Buinaksk, the
source said, adding: "According to preliminary information, it
claimed five lives and wounded 39."

Shootings and bomb attacks have become a near-daily
occurrence in the North Caucasus, particularly in Dagestan and
its capital Makhachkala, where the authorities are battling an
increasingly deadly Islamist insurgency.

Analysts say poverty and corruption create a fertile
ground for violence and help Islamist militants recruit young
people in the region.
