    No one was injured as a bomb detonated near a police bus in Makhachkala, the capital of the Russian North Caucasus republic of Dagestan, police said Sunday.

    MAKHACHKALA, September 13 (RIA Novosti) - No one was injured as a bomb detonated near a police bus in Makhachkala, the capital of the Russian North Caucasus republic of Dagestan, police said Sunday.

    "An explosive device went off when a bus with police officers was moving. The device had probably been planted in a garbage can on the roadside," a spokesman said.

    Russia's North Caucasus republics, in particular, Dagestan, Chechnya and Ingushetia, have seen a dramatic rise in militant activity of late, with attacks on police, federal forces and officials reported almost daily.

    The Kremlin officially ended its anti-terrorism operation in Chechnya in April. The republic saw two brutal separatist wars in the 1990s and early 2000s.
