Two Killed In Explosion In Daghestan

A bomb exploded in a car in Russia's volatile North Caucasus Republic of Daghestan, killing two people.

The blast took place in Daghestan's central district of Ghunib early in the morning of June 9.

It is not clear if the bomb detonated while being transported aboard the vehicle or if it was intentionally planted in the car.

The victims are as yet unidentified.

The explosion took place after police in Daghestan's eastern district of Sergokala say they found a homemade bomb aboard a truck near the village of Ayalivimakhi on June 8.

Daghestani officials say the bomb was detonated by experts at the site.
