PYATIGORSK, December 27 (RIA Novosti) – At least two people were killed on Friday when a car exploded in front of a traffic police building in Russia’s southern city of Pyatigorsk, in the restive North Caucasus region, investigators said.
A senior official with the local branch of Russia’s Investigative Committee, Yekaterina Danilova, said the blast had killed two people.
A local police source had earlier told RIA Novosti that three people were killed in the blast: the driver of the car and two passengers, presumably police officers.
That official said the blast damaged four other cars parked nearby as well as the facade of a cafe.
The site of the blast has been cordoned off by police investigating the incident, the police official said. The exact number of victims is still being determined.

If attempts to drag Russia into a direct military conflict in Ukraine are successful, it would be a catastrophe for Russia comparable to the 1979-1989 Afghan war. There is no direct evidence that the US is trying to bring about a second Afghan war, but indirect evidence abounds.
