Cafe Attack in Russia’s North Caucasus
A bomb attack in a cafe in Russia’s North Caucasus kills an unknown number of people just hours after a suicide bomber killed a policeman in a nearby region.
State television said the cause of the cafe blast and the number of casualties are still unknown.
The Interfax news agency says that 18 people had been taken to hospital.
Earlier in North Ossetia a suicide bomber blew himself up after approaching a checkpoint on a road near the border, killing one police officer.
While the identities of the attackers remain unknown … the Kremlin is struggling to contain an Islamist insurgency in its mainly Muslim North Caucasus.
