According to police, at least three civilians were killed and three others injured by a car bomb in the Republic of Dagestan in Russia.

Reports say the blast occurred outside the Karavan Cafe in Khasavyurt and only killed those inside the cafe.

An unconfirmed report says one of the injured died while receiving medical treatment.

There are nearly daily attacks in Dagestan from Islamic militants, wanting to form an Islamic state. The militants usually target police and other security officials.

Militants from Dagestan are suspected in an attack earlier this week at the Domodedovo airport in Moscow, killing at least 35 and injuring 110.

Rain in Guatemala kills eighteen

President Alvaro Colom says torrential downpours causing flooding and landslides have undone the country’s reconstruction from Tropical Storm Agatha in May. Up to eighteen people are reported killed in rain-related incidents across the country as weather systems in both the Gulf of Mexico and the Pacific batter the region, and forecasters expect another 48 hours of precipitation. At least ten people were killed, 20 rescued, when a landslide buried a bus as it traveled on the Inter-American highway in the worst single-incident.

After driving away from police, a thirteen-year-old driver struck a pole, plowed through a couple of fences, and bumped a parked car into the house before coming to a rest at the front door. Police spokesperson Ros Wetherall reported officers attempted to stop the Holden Commodore around 1 a.m. local time (5 p.m. UTC), but had to search for the vehicle which they found crashed into the home on Grovelands Drive, Camillo.

At least eight people have been killed in the Russian province of Dagestan after an ambush by rebels, according to reports.

The incident occurred in the Sergokailinsky district last night about 80 kilometres (50 miles) south of Dagestan’s capital Makhachkala, when workers were being dispatched to fix a cell phone tower owned by the “Beeline” (Билайн) telecommunications company. The tower had earlier been damaged by bomb blasts by rebels. When driving up to the tower, the convoy of workers, accompanied by police officers, came under fire.

“According to preliminary information, an attack was made on a car with policemen. Eight people in the vehicle were killed. Other passengers received injuries or concussions,” said a source with the security force of the Sergokalinsky district.

The Dagestan province frequently sees violence, blamed on gangs and separatists supposedly inspired by rebels in neighbouring Chechnya.

Two bombings in the northern Caucasus region of Russia have killed at least twelve people and injured another eighteen.

The explosions occurred in Kizlyar, a town in the Dagestan province. The first bomb was detonated in a car near a school, killing two police officers, at around 08.30 Moscow time (04.30 UTC). According to Russian interior minister Rashid Nurgaliyev, police tried to stop the car before it blew up, as they had thought it looked suspicious.

The second explosion was caused by a suicide bomber disguised as a police officer. He had approached the scene of the first bombing as passerby and security gathered, and set off explosives.

According to officials, many of the dead were policemen, among them the Kizlyar police chief.

“In the blasts, twelve people have been killed, nine of them were police officers, including the Kizlyar police chief. Twenty-three others have been hospitalized, suffering with various injuries,” commented a spokesman for the Investigative Committee of Russian Prosecutor General’s Office, Vladimir Markin, to Interfax. He also noted that a criminal investigation into the bombings has been started.

A suicide bombing in Russia’s southern Dagestan republic killed six policemen and wounded at least sixteen other people on Wednesday, according to reports.

Authorities said that a suicide bomber attempted to drive an SUV packed with explosives into a police station near Dagestan’s capital, Makhachkala. A police team, however, drove into the van, preventing it from reaching its target.

“He [the bomber] was stopped by a special operations group at the last minute. The measures taken by these policemen stopped the terrorist from reaching the site where other police officers prepared for duty.” said an unnamed spokesman to the Interfax news agency.

Russian media report the blast left a two-meter wide crater, and that bomb fragments broke windows as far as 300 meters from the site. Investigators at the scene believed that the bomber’s car had been carrying artillery shells as strong as 200 pounds of TNT.

Dagestan borders Chechnya, where the long-running fight between Russian troops and Islamic separatists has spilled over into neighboring republics in the North Caucasus.

An oil depot in Russia is burning after an explosion at the facility near the Caspian Sea in Dagestan. A female worker has been hospitalised with burns covering her entire body.

A 10,000 tonne oil reservoir has been burning since the explosion at 4:10 p.m. local time (13:10 GMT). Eyewitnesses describe thick plumes of smoke rising from the area.

At least 20 fire engines are using foam to try and quench the blaze. Dagestan’s Emergencies Minister Murtazali Gadzhiyev went on Russia’s Vesti-24 channel to discuss the current situation. “We managed to open the taps … and now this oil is being pumped out,” Gadzhiyev said. “We are trying to keep the fire away from other reservoirs.”

Map of Russia showing Dagestan

An explosion today in Makhachkala, Russia in the Russian region of Dagestan killed one and wounded five others, police say. The bomb detonated in a pile of garbage, where servicemen and a truck had been sent to search for explosives on a street near a military base. When the engineers got out of the truck to search, the bomb went off.

The Dagestani Ministry, reported by the Russian news agency ITAR-Tass, originally stated that the blast killed two servicemen and wounded three others. They later revised this to six servicemen wounded (as well as one civilian), but no fatalities. A police officer told ITAR-Tass news that a brigade had been on patrol when the explosion occurred.

According to RIA-Novosti and Interfax news, medics reported one death and six injuries. RIA-Novosti also reports that the bomb exploded near a trolley bus.

Police and ambulances were immediately brought to the area of the explosion, which was quickly sealed off by police.

The alleged planters of the bomb were followed by police, but escaped after firing at the officers.

This explosion is not surprising, as racial tensions in the Muslim majority region of Dagestan often lead to attacks on officials and police.

The Itar-Tass news agency reports that an explosion in the southern Russian town of Makhachkala, Dagestan, has killed 10 soldiers and wounded 20 others on Friday. Two bombs were set off in a bath house at 2:15 pm local time as the soldiers were passing outside, according to an official of the Russian Interior Ministry. Dagestan borders Chechnya, which has a long history of uprisings against Russian rule. The current insurrection started at the time of the breakup of the Soviet Union in 1990.
