An explosion on Tuesday near the town of Buynaksk in the Russian North Caucasus Republic of Dagestan injured the head of the Untsukulsky District and killed two people, a spokesman for the local police said.

According to preliminary information, an explosive device hidden under the official’s Toyota Prado injured the official, his driver, a body guard.

The spokesman said the district head and one other person were injured in the attack and two others were killed. One of the dead is possibly the district head’s son, but the body is severely burned and therefore difficult to immediately verify the identity.
