Two people were killed and two injured when a car exploded in Nazran, the largest city in Russia's North Caucasus republic of Ingushetia, a local investigator said on Wednesday.
"The car caught fire after the explosion," he said. "Two bodies and two injured persons were found inside."
They were hospitalized in a serious condition, he added. An investigation is ongoing.
Similar attacks have been reported almost daily in Russia's North Caucasus republics this year, the worst occurring in Ingushetia on August 17 when at least 20 people were killed and 260 injured in a suicide truck bombing on a police compound in Nazran.
In June, Ingush President Yunus-Bek Yevkurov survived a car bomb attack on his motorcade.
