A suicide bomber ‘screaming Allahu Akbar’ blew himself up and injured six people in an attack on Federal Security Service headquarters in southern Russia on Friday, December 11.
The country’s National Anti-Terrorism Committee said an unidentified person tried to break into an area where police were conducting searches.
The person then triggered the bomb when officers tried to arrest him, the committee said, adding that ‘six officers were lightly injured’ in the blast.
The unidentified man carrying explosives also died at the scene.
‘According to preliminary findings, the man shared the views of extremist groups and the militant underground,’ said the source.
The incident was close to the FSB counterintelligence office in the village where a ‘clap’ was heard.
The attacker had got out of a car and walked up to a group of FSB officers who were conducting a ‘criminal intelligence operation’.
