Buinaksk bombing shows militants still have powers - Dagestan's president
13:00 05/09/2010

The suicide bombing in the North Caucasus city of Buinaksk has shown that militants in the region still have powers for attacks, Dagestan's President Magomedsalam Magomedov said.

"The republic's law enforcement agencies have held a range of successful operations against militants within the resent time. But they [law enforcers] still have to augment efforts to eliminate militant bands entirely," Magomedov, who is currently in Buinaksk, said.

Early on Sunday a car packed with explosives and driven by a suicide bomber detonated near the Dagestan's town of Buinaksk after ramming the gates of a military unit. Five people were killed in the bombing.

Later, a second bomb exploded in Buinaksk on the way of police officers heading to the site of the first blast.

Five of the injured are in hospital, they are in serious conditions, official spokesman for the Russian Defense Ministry, Col. Alexei Kuznetsov said, adding that other 27 servicemen received wounds of varying severity.

Russian Defense Minister Anatoly Serdyukov has ordered additional measures to enchase antiterrorist security of military objects in the Southern Military District of Russia, Col. Kuznetsov said.

Russia's North Caucasus republics, in particular Chechnya, Dagestan and Ingushetia, have seen frequent attacks on police and officials despite the end of a decade-long special regime for counterterrorism operations in Chechnya the last years.

On Saturday, an attempt on Dagestan's Minister of National Policy, Foreign Relations and Information Bekmurza Bekmurzayev was committed. Bekmurzayev's car exploded when he was on his way to work at the capital of Makhachkala. The minister survived the attempt on his life, but his driver died.
