Blast kills two at Russian hydroelectric power station

A bomb and gun attack on a Russian hydroelectric power station has killed two guards and injured two others.

Four bombs caused a fire in the Baksan plant's engine room which was later extinguished, prosecutors said.

The plant on the Baksan river lies in a part of the North Caucasus gripped by a violent Islamist insurgency.
