As a result, at least 11 peaceful residents were lost and 159 more were wounded. From the start of 2010, 23 explosions were triggered and one terror act was committed by a suicide bomber.

These are the totals summed up by the "Caucasian Knot" office on the basis of open sources. The data on terror acts committed against state bodies - both power and administrative ones, and those committed against industrial targets were not included.
