Three suicide bombers blew themselves up 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.Attacks in the Stavropol region – close to the Muslim-majority North Caucasus – are rare."We were holding a meeting in the morning when five explosions went off," Sergei Karamyshev, a senior local police official, told AFP. "Three people blew themselves up after an officer on duty at the entrance blocked the door to the building". He said three of the explosions were caused by the suicide bombers, while a fourth was caused by a grenade.
