Two bombs exploded in Russia’s Dagestan province on Sunday, derailing a freight train in an attack a security source linked to suicide bombings in Moscow and the same region, RIA news agency reported.
Russia is on edge after the suicide attacks in Moscow and Dagestan killed more than 50 people in the past week. Nobody was wounded in the latest attack.
The pre-dawn blasts on a rail line leading from Moscow to the ex-Soviet republic of Azerbaijan caused nine wagons of a train carrying construction materials to derail. Television footage showed pipes spilled from damaged wagons.
“The first data show that this explosion is continuation of the terrorist attack from fighters of the Northern Caucasus, that started on March 29,” a source in Russia’s security services, was quoted by RIA as saying, referring to the date of the Moscow attacks.
