Law enforcers look for bomb in Makhachkala mosque

The threat of mining a mosque in Makhachkala has not confirmed, the Dagestani Ministry of Internal Affairs (MIA) has reported. Instagram users urge to quickly find and punish the author of the bomb report.

On Saturday, policemen drove believers out of the central mosque in Makhachkala after a telephone call about an explosive device, a law enforcement source has explained.

"The most dangerous thing is that such calls will be received frequently; and over time the police will lose their vigilance," said the user monica777777 on the Instagram page of the Dagestani MIA.

Last week, false reports about planted bombs were also reported in other regions of Southern Russia - in the Krasnodar Territory, Kabardino-Balkaria, Karachay-Cherkessia, Stavropol Territory, and Volgograd and Rostov Regions.
