Two people were killed and three others were injured in a terrorist attack on a hydroelectric power station in Russia on Wednesday. During the attack on the Baksan hydroelectric plant in Russia’s Kabardino-Balkaria region, which is located in a section of the North Caucasus that has been plagued by an Islamist insurgency, six gunmen in two cars opened fire on the facility’s guards, killing two of them and wounding three others. In addition, four explosive devices were detonated at the facility, which caused a fire in the plant’s engine room. A fifth bomb failed to go off. Although no one has claimed responsibility for the attack, the incident is being blamed on the same group that recently opened fire on a police station in Baksan.
