A dozen people, including a top police official, have died in another twin suicide bombing today in Russia. The attack occurred in the southern Dagestan province, near the Chechnya border.

The BBC reports that first a car blew up outside an interior ministry's office in Kizlyar. Then, another bomber blew himself up 20 minutes later where a crowd gathered.

The Dagestan attack comes two days after a terrorist attack on Moscow's subway killed 39 people.
