Other words even though 40 people died and scores were injured in two attacks. The efficiency of these attacks was amateurish and not well thought out. You have to look at what the terrorists wanted to accomplish and in that they failed…
Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin said at a government session on Wednesday he did not rule out that a single terrorist group may be behind the bombings. President Dmitry Medvedev also said there may be a link.
Wednesday’s attacks took place in the town of Kizlyar, near Dagestan’s border with Chechnya, and also left 29 people injured.
The first blast went off at 08:45 Moscow time (04:45 GMT), when a car bomb was detonated by a suicide bomber some 300 meters from the buildings of the Interior Ministry, Federal Security Service and a school. It had a force of up to 200 kg of TNT. (This was a primer bomb to draw the victims together! – Kyle)
Two police officers were killed in the explosion, which also injured several bystanders.
The second explosion came 20 minutes later when a suicide bomber dressed in a police officer’s uniform blew himself up as a crowd gathered. (This was the real bomb to kill the police – Kyle)
The suicide bomber, who had the equivalent of 1.5 kg of TNT strapped to his body, has been identified as Daud Jabrailov, a citizen of Kizlyar, Dagestan’s Interior Ministry said.
“Around 20 minutes later a suicide bomber, dressed in a police officer’s uniform, arrived at the scene where an investigation group was working, and activated an explosive device he had on his body,” the statement added.
A total of nine policemen were killed in the blasts, including the city’s police chief, Vitaly Vedernikov.
