3 Suicide Bombers Dead in Thwarted Attack on Russian Police Station

Three suicide bombers have died in an attempted attack on a police station in Russia’s Stavropol region, the Interfax news agency reported Monday.

The militants attempted to gain entry to the building of the Novoselitsky district department of the interior building in Russia’s North Caucasus region.

“During the attempted attack, two militants were killed and one managed to detonate a device,” Interfax reported, citing a statement from the regional prosecutor Yury Turygin.

The statement confirmed that all three attackers died in the attempt. No police officers or civilians have been reported injured but the building and nearby police cars suffered some damage, Interfax reported.
