Nine Homemade Bombs Found in Nalchik 'Lab of Death'

Security services in the North Caucasus found nine homemade bombs at a laboratory in Nalchik on Tuesday, thereby preventing a potential series of terrorist attacks, RIA-Novosti reported.

The bombs were found Tuesday night in an underground laboratory, called a "laboratory of death" by the  National Antiterrorist Committee, beneath a garage in the capital of Kabardino-Balkaria. The garage was apparently owned by local gang member Tembulat Kazdokhov, the committee said in a statement.

"The self-made explosives contained more than 100 kilograms of explosive force. According to bomb experts, an explosion of that force could destroy an entire city block," the statement said. "The timely destruction of the 'laboratory of death' and disposal of nine homemade bombs has prevented a series of terrorist attacks in Nalchik and avoided a large number of deaths."

The bombs were taken to a secure area and destroyed.

… 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.
