Prosecutor’s Aide Blown Up in Russia’s North Caucasus

MAKHACHKALA, December 31 (RIA Novosti) – An aide to a regional prosecutor died in a bomb attack in Russia’s troubled North Caucasus on Tuesday, a regional Investigative Committee spokesman said.

Unknown assailants in the town of Buinaksk in the republic of Dagestan detonated an explosive device under Rasul Gasanov’s Toyota car, killing him on the spot, the spokesman said.

More than a decade after a war against Islamist separatists ended in the neighboring republic of Chechnya, Russian security forces and police continue to fight militants across the volatile North Caucasus region.

Attacks by militants on security forces, police and civilians are reported regularly in the republics of Dagestan, Ingushetia and Kabardino-Balkaria.
