Three suicide bombers blew themselves up on Monday as they tried to storm a rural police station in a usually peaceful region of southern Russia, causing no other casualties, police said.After the attack in the village of Novoselitskoye in the southern Stavropol region, regional authorities ordered the tightening of security measures at kindergartens, schools and hospitals.Russia's North Caucasus – including Chechnya, where the Kremlin has fought two wars against separatists over the past 20 years – has been gripped by nearly daily violence for years due to a simmering Islamist insurgency there.But attacks in the Stavropol region – close to the Muslim-majority North Caucasus – are rare.The lifenews.ru news outlet, known for its close ties to police and security agencies, posted an eyewitness video shot after the attack, showing the police station with an alarm sounding and what appear to be fragments of bodies outside.
