Twin terror attacks kill 3 in Russia's Dagestan


13:25, November 22, 2012

MOSCOW, Nov. 21 (Xinhua) -- Three people were killed and another one wounded Wednesday in twin terror attacks in Dagestan of Russia's North Caucasus, local police said Wednesday.

Two bombs were detonated in the same bank's premises in the village of Shamilkala with a three-hour gap, at 09:15 and 12:10 Moscow time (0515 and 0810 GMT).

Two policemen and one civilian were killed, spokesman for the Dagestan Interior Ministry Vyacheslav Gasanov told reporters.

These were the latest terror attacks in Northern Caucasus in recent days. Last week, militants used automatic rifles and grenade throwers in two separate attacks against police and security officers in Ingushetia and Dagestan, killing one officer and wounding another.

Violence is common in Russia's North Caucasus, especially in republics of Chechnya, Dagestan and Ingushetia, with militants frequently mounting attacks against police officers and authorities.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has urged the anti-terrorism forces to work "daringly and actively" to prevent possible terror attacks.
