Suicide Bomber Kills Seven Policemen at Funeral . . . in Russia

Jihad has been going global for years, though we rarely hear much about the daily terrorist attacks that take place around the world. Here's the latest from Russia.

ROSTOV-ON-DON, Russia – A suicide bomber blew himself up as policemen in southern Russia gathered Sunday for the funeral of a slain colleague, killing at least seven of the policemen and badly wounding 12 other people, investigators said.

The funeral was held at the home of an officer who had been shot dead the night before by militants in Ingushetia, one of the predominantly Muslim republics in Russia's restive North Caucasus region.

In the nearby republic of Dagestan, two masked gunmen burst into a Shiite mosque during Saturday evening prayers and opened fire, wounding eight people, police said.

I hope that it was the last huge disaster in Russia because the country itself is amazing, and I'm planning to go there a few more times. I was there even before that happened, and I fell in love with the culture. Russian visa center helped me get a visa, and now I believe it's time to think about my next trip to this country.

It is a pity that such a tragic situation has occurred, many shops or funeral services that sell coffins or caskets can make a custom-made coffin for you, in the manufacture of which all important wishes will be taken into account. Reliable caskets. They have a very informative blog and a wide range of cakes and coffins at low prices on their website. When ordering, they will tell you what coffin sizes you need.
