TEHRAN (FNA)- A suicide bombing has struck near a building of the Russian Interior Affairs Ministry in Dagestan, North Caucasus, injuring eleven people, including two children, officials said.
The suicide bomber, reportedly a woman, is dead, and five police officers and six civilians were injured in the attack, RT reported.
The blast was reportedly so powerful that a shockwave was felt a great distance from the explosion.
The scene of the explosion has been cordoned off. All of the injured have been sent to hospital.
Police are searching the area for more explosives, fearing a second blast might follow. On May 20, two bombs were detonated outside the headquarters of the court bailiff in Dagestan's capital Makhachkala, killing four people and injuring 46.
The second blast in Makhachkala was more powerful than the first, coming after police arrived at the scene of the initial explosion. Such double blasts are frequently used by terrorists in the North Caucasus to target police and raise the death tolls of their attacks.
