Suicide bomber kills 2 police in Russia's Caucasus

Russian investigators say that two police officers have been killed by a suicide bomber in a restive North Caucasus province near Chechnya.
Svetlana Gorbakova of the Investigative Committee said a suicide attacker approached police headquarters in the town of Karabulak in the province of Ingushetia on Monday and detonated his explosives. The blast killed two police officers and wounded one other.
Gorbakova said that half an hour later a vehicle parked near the police headquarters exploded, wounding a worker of the local prosecutor's office.
The attacks come a week after twin suicide bombings in the Moscow subway killed 40 and wounded scores of others during rush hour. Authorities blamed militants from Russia's North Caucasus.
