A SUICIDE car-bomber killed three soldiers and wounded 32 others in an attack on a military base in Russia’s violence-plagued republic of Dagestan yesterday, officials said.
The attack took place about 1am at the base in the city of Buinaksk.
The driver of the explosives-laden small Zhiguli automobile smashed through a gate of the base and headed for an area where soldiers are quartered in tents.
But soldiers opened fire before he reached the base centre. The driver rammed the car into a military truck where it exploded.
