A powerful explosion killed three people and wounded 40 more today in Dagestan, the region that was once home to Boston Marathon bombing suspects Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, reports Reuters. Police had found a bomb in a car outside a law enforcement building in the region's capital city of Makhachkala, and were in the process of disarming it when a second one blew up, CNN reports. Russia Today has a slightly different account, saying the first bomb blew up, but didn't hurt anyone.
It wasn't Russia's only brush with terrorism today either; authorities today announced that they'd foiled an attack on Moscow, killing two Russian citizens that they alleged were militants "trained in Afghanistan and Pakistan." The two were reportedly killed in a shootout at a home in a suburb east of Moscow. (Read more Dagestan stories.)
