Two explosions occurred successively in northeast Moscow on Friday, according to local reports.

Citing a source in city law enforcement, Interfax news agency said one of the bombs was planted on the roof of a local garage and another was found in a garbage container.

"The explosions occurred one after another. Each bomb was equivalent to approximately 150 grams of TNT," the source was quoted as saying.

There were no immediate reports of damage or casualties.

Russia has been plagued by terror attacks for years, especially those from the Caucasus region.

After January's deadly terror attack on Moscow's Domodedovo Airport, which killed 37 people and wounded over 130, President Dmitry Medvedev has vowed to adopt tougher security measures.
