Eleven people were wounded in an apparent suicide bombing in Russia’s restive Dagestan region Saturday, a spokeswoman for the regional interior ministry said.
The bomber, believed to be a woman, blew herself up not far from the interior ministry building in the centre of Makhachkala, spokeswoman Fatina Ubaidatova told AFP.
The latest attack in the troubled Northern Caucasus region comes after twin car bombs killed four people and wounded several dozen in the same city on Monday.
Dagestan is one of Russia’s most violent regions. It is also home to the parents of Boston marathon bombing suspects Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev.
