Suicide Bomber Kills 20 In Russia

At least 20 people were killed today in Russia when a suicide truck bomber slammed his vehicle into a police station.

Russia Today has video from Ingushetia:


Ingushetia has seen a recent uptick in violence.

The AP reported:

A suicide bomber exploded a truck at a police station in Russia’s North Caucasus on Monday, killing at least 20 people and wounding about 60 others, officials said.

The bombing was the deadliest in months in the restive southern region, denting Kremlin claims that the area was stabilizing after 15 years of separatist fighting in Chechnya and violence in surrounding provinces.

The attacker rammed the gates of the Nazran city police headquarters, in Ingushetia province, and detonated his explosives as police officers were lining up for a morning check, said Svetlana Gorbakova of the regional branch of the Investigative Committee of the Russian Prosecutor General’s office.

Police had fired shots at the truck, but failed to stop it. The blast triggered a fire that raged for hours, destroying a weapons room where ammunition detonated.

The AP failed to mention who was behind the attack.

You can put that together yourself.
