A suicide bomber blew himself up at a police checkpoint in Russia's North Caucasus republic of Ingushetia Tuesday, local media reported.

It was not immediately known if the blast injured any police officers, Itar-Tass news agency cited a local police source as saying.

The source said the man blew himself up at a police checkpoint in the village of Galashki at Sunzha district after he was stopped by officers who thought he looked suspicious.

"When the unidentified man was asked for his papers, he activated an explosive device hidden beneath his clothing," the source was quoted as saying.

Violence is common in the North Caucasus republics of Chechnya, Dagestan and Ingushetia with militants frequently mounting attacks targeting police officers and authorities.
