The first explosion occurred at night on the border between North Ossetia and Ingushetia. A cargo train was blown up. The second blast was in Ingushetia's west in the morning near a court building.
The third explosive went off near a bus stop in Nazran, the biggest republican city, and the fourth hit western Ingushetia when a military column was passing.

"The detention of the remainder of the criminal groups is a matter of time," Khamkhoyev said.
