An alleged suicide bomber detonated himself at a security service building in the southern Russian republic of Karachayevo-Cherkessia, leaving at least six people injured.

“Today, at about 12:00 Moscow time, in the village of Uchkeken of the Karachay-Cherkess Republic, an attempt by an unidentified person to break through to the territory where the law enforcement agencies were conducting operational-search measures was prevented. When attempting to arrest the criminal, the criminal carried out a suicide bombing,” announced the National Anti-Terrorist Committee (NAC.)

A video shared by the Baza Telegram channel showed a blurred body lying next to a building entrance believed to be the regional Federal Security Service (FSB) headquarters.

The blast site has been cordoned off while investigators are trying to identify the suspect and his motives.

The five FSB officers and one bystander that were injured by the explosion have been hospitalized for shrapnel wounds.
