"At 3:15 a.m. (2315 GMT Tuesday), a police building was attacked with a grenade launcher in the city of Baksan. There were no casualties," said the source.

The Baksan hydropower plant was built between 1930 and 1936.

The latest attack follows a series of attacks on June 11, when six TV and radio stations were attacked overnight at various districts of the republic, causing neither casualties nor disruption of normal operation of the stations.

Violence is common in Russia's mainly Muslim North Caucasus republics, especially Chechnya, Dagestan and Ingushetia, with militants frequently targeting police and officials as representing the Russian authorities.

Moscow has announced it will tackle the problem of unemployment, clan rivalry and corruption as these are viewed as the reasons for violence in the region.Source: Xinhua
