Car Bomb Explosion In Southern Russia

Reports from southern Russia say a car bomb exploded near a military base in the Daghestan region today, killing at least one person.

The blast occurred in the town of Kaspiysk as Russia celebrated the 65th anniversary of the end of World War II.

Officials said one person in the car died in the explosion.

Daghestan, along with the other North Caucasus republics of Ingushetia and Chechnya, sees frequent attacks from Islamist militants who are seeking to break away from Moscow.
