A man wearing a suicide bomber vest died in Russia’s North Caucasus Republic of Dagestan after his bomb apparently exploded ahead of time, with no one hurt in the explosion, local police said on Sunday.
The incident occurred late on Saturday in the town of Kizlyar. The body of a man was found at the site of the explosion. He was identified as a 30-year old resident of Dagestan. A submachine gun, two grenades and the fragments of a suicide bomber vest were found near him, the police said.
The man was found near a railway station and a filling station, the police said.
Russia has been fighting terrorists in its volatile southern republics for over a decade. Terrorist attacks are common in the mainly-Muslim region and regularly stray to the Russian capital.
