Suicide Bomber Identified

A suicide bomber who blew himself up in a car at a military camp in the Dagestani town of Buinaksk was identified as Zamir Terekbayev, 26, a Stavropol region resident, Interfax reported Tuesday.

Terekbayev’s body was nearly destroyed in the blast, but he was identified by his fingerprints, collected when he was drafted into the army in 2002, the report said.

Sunday’s blast killed four soldiers and injured 35 others. Investigators and army officials have accused camp commanders of neglecting security measures to prevent such attacks.


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
