Car bomb in southern Russia kills 8, wounds 6
Among the dead was an 11-year-old girl, a police officer said.
Moscow: Investigators say a powerful car bomb killed eight people, including an 11-year-old girl and a police officer, in Russia's volatile Dagestan province.
The Investigative Committee, Russia's top investigative body, said the explosive that was planted in a car parked at a road crossing in the central Levashinsky district also wounded six more police officers on Wednesday.
Dagestan, a multi-ethnic, predominantly Muslim republic, is plagued by near-daily violence.
It is part of the restive Caucasus region that has been destabilised by an Islamist insurgency that has spread across the region following two separatist wars in Chechnya.
