Two handmade bombs were found near an Orthodox cemetery in Ordzhonikidzevskaya, Ingushetia's Sunzha district on Sunday, a source with the Ingush Interior Ministry told the Itar-Tass news agency.

The bombs have been defused now and no one was hurt, the source said.

After the police found the first bomb, which was made of a 122- millimeter projectile, a detonator and a cell phone, investigators searched the site for another bomb and demolition experts came to demolish them.

Russia police were on high alert in the Orthodox Easter holiday, following several terrorist bombings in Moscow and Dagestan that claimed over 50 lives.

Early on Sunday, an explosion derailed eight cars of a cargo train in Russia's North Caucasian republic of Dagestan.

Russia's restive North Caucasus republics, particularly Chechnya, Dagestan and Ingushetia, have been plagued by violence that particularly targeted policemen and law enforcement officers, whom local rebels take as representing the Russian authorities.
