15:18, September 29, 2011

MOSCOW, Sept. 28 (Xinhua) -- Four people were killed in a car bombing in Russia's restive North Caucasus Republic of Dagestan on Wednesday, the local interior ministry said.

Earlier reports said one policeman died and two others were wounded in the explosion in the Dagestani village of Khajalmakhi. Updated information said the bomb also killed three civilians.

"The explosion went off when the policemen tried to check a suspicious car," a ministry source said.

Four other police officers were injured in the blast, the source added.

Russia has been plagued by terror attacks for years, many of which originated from the North Caucasus republics of Chechnya, Dagestan and Ingushetia.
