Suicide Bombings Seen Rising in Russian Region Near Olympics

Islamic extremists in southern Russia are increasingly using suicide bombers, and the government’s offensive against radicals in the North Caucasus has led to an increase in civilian casualties, a report showed.

The number of civilians killed in clashes rose 20 percent last year to 104, even as the total number of deaths fell 24 percent from 2012, according to data collected by Caucasian Knot, a Moscow-based news and analysis group that tracks the region. While there were fewer attacks in total, the number of suicide bombings climbed to nine from seven, the report showed.
