Assailants launched an attack on a hydroelectric station in southern Russia today, killing two workers and setting off bombs.
The attack took place in Kabardino-Balkariya, one of the republics in Russia’s volatile Caucasus region where clashes with insurgents are frequent.
A spokesman for the republic’s police, Adlan Kankakee, said two cars carrying half a dozen attackers targeted the Baksan plant, killing two guards and wounding three others in gunfire.
They then detonated explosives in several parts of the 25-megawatt plant before fleeing.
There were no immediate claims of responsibility for the attack.
