One Killed In Daghestani Store Bombing

Police examine the site of a blast outside a grocery store in Makhachkala, Daghestan, on November 8.
At least one person was killed and one wounded in a bomb attack on a grocery store in the capital of Russia's North Caucasus republic of Daghestan, Makhachkala.

The Daghestani Interior Ministry says that the attack on November 8 destroyed the store.

Last week, a similar attack against a liquor shop in Makhachkala killed two and injured 15 people.

Islamic insurgents in Daghestan and other restive republics of Russia's volatile North Caucasus region frequently attack liquor stores and other public places selling alcoholic beverages, as Islam prohibits the drinking of alcohol.
