Moscow, Sep 5: At least 5 people were killed and 39 injured in a suicide terror attack on a military unit in the southern Russian republic of Dagestan, on Sunday, Sep 5.

A suicide bomber detonated his car packed with explosives near Buinaksk town after ramming into the gates of the military unit, the source said

A second explosion took place in the town as investigators were heading to the site, but there were no casualties.

A defence ministry spokesman said the ministry has dispatched a special commission led by acting Southern Military District commander Maj Gen Alexander Galkin to the site of the terrorist attack.

Sporadic terrorist attacks and militant clashes are common in Russia's largely Muslim North Caucasus republics, especially Dagestan, Chechnya and Ingushetia.
