Police in Russia's southern Stavropol region say they have found a suicide belt and detained its suspected owner.
Police said on November 1 that sniffer dogs discovered the powerful homemade explosive device during a search operation on the outskirts of the southwestern city of Stavropol.
Police said the suicide belt was filled with the equivalent of some two kilograms of TNT and equipped with a detonator.
The suspected owner was later detained.
He was said to be a 30-year-old man, but it was not immediately clear whether he was a resident of Stavropol.
The reported discovery of the suicide belt and the man's detention came a week after six people were killed in a suspected suicide attack on a bus in the city of Volgograd.
