Bomb technicians defused another car bomb in the southern Russian city of Stavropol on Thursday, just hours after the first one was defused in the same place, a local law enforcement source said.
The first car, containing a corpse and 15 kg of explosives, was discovered parked outside a cafe in the south-west of the city early on Thursday.
Two residential tower blocks and a school in the neighboring area were evacuated.
"Another explosive device was found in a Lada Kalina car parked nearby." The source said, adding that the device had already been defused.
The combined power of the two explosive devices was equivalent to 90 kg of TNT, the National Anti-terrorism Committee said.

Country such as Powerful Russia should terminate terrorists within 1-2 weeks.
- caleb(no title)23:02, 30/09/2010the only way to deal with gueriila or 'terrorists' as they are called in some cases, is to destroy them in their homes with their relatives, that hide them
that is possible during war , but still difficult, just look at Aghanistan - for every dead terrorist there are 15-20 murdered civilians
of course ,since this is covered by the media, the americans themselves look like terrorists and murderers
but Chechenia is run by Kadyrov, who is actually a former terrorist himself, and most chechen families are linked in one way or another to acting or former terrorists
and it is inacceptable in times of 'peace' to kill civilians in order to deal with terrorist
so nothing can actually be done with the chechen guerilla at the moment even if there were political will to deal with this issue
and with the absence of capital punishment in Russia, the convicted terrorists sentenced for 20-25 years all will be free by year 2030, and some will return to what they were sentenced for

For Russia, Crimea is more than just a territory. It is not for land that Russia is putting all her prestige at stake. This situation is about wounded national pride, history, identity, national phobias, a new Russian nationalism, past relations with the “West” full of real and perceived injuries, and Western hypocrisy.
