Interfax says no one was hurt in the blast, which occurred at the Khasavyurt-Kizylyurt rail section in the southern Russian republic.


Law-enforcement authorities are investigating the incident.


Violence has increased in recent years in Daghestan, which shares a border with the republic of Chechnya, where separatist rebels have fought Russian rule for 11 years.
