Russia rocked by new deadly suicide attack

At least one policemen and seven civilians were killed when a car which was being checked exploded in the troubled Dagestan-Russia. Among those who were killed was an 11 years old young girl.

This unfortunate incident happened about 60 km from Makhachkala the provincial capital, in a village Hajjalmakhi. A policemen who was checking the car was among the victims. The other who died were five civilians who were in another car and were just t passing by this car when it exploded. Two other civilians icluding a young girl who were standing near the car also died.

Dagestan, in the mainly Muslim North Caucasus region, is beset by frequent bomb attacks. Only last week six policemen were killed when three car bombs went off one after another at three different locations. In another incident armed men shot down four men.

The separatists want an Independent Islamic state where they can live according to the shariah law.
