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.
