world Updated: Apr 11, 2011 12:01 IST

A man, wearing a suicide bomber vest, died in Russia's North Caucasus Republic of Dagestan after his bomb apparently exploded prematurely, said police on Sunday, adding no one was hurt in the explosion.

The incident occurred late Saturday in Kizlyar town.

The body of the man, identified as a 30-year old resident of Dagestan, was found at the explosion site.

A submachine gun, two grenades and the fragments of a suicide bomber vest were found near him, the police said.

The man was found near a railway station and a filling station, the police said.

Russia has been fighting terrorists in its volatile southern republics for over a decade.

Terrorist attacks are common in the mainly-Muslim region and regularly stray to the Russian capital.
