The loss of 178 people and injuries obtained by at least 895 persons more in 238 explosions and terror acts committed in 2010 in the territory of the North-Caucasian Federal District (NCFD) and in Moscow are most tragic outcomes of the glowing Northern Caucasus conflict.

The calculations of the "Caucasian Knot", based on information of own correspondents and data from open sources, also evidence about 24 terror acts committed by suicide bombers and self-explosions in Moscow and in the Caucasus.

The Republic of Dagestan has become an absolute leader by the number of committed terror acts and lost lives. In 2010, at least 112 explosions and terror acts were committed here. These events resulted in at least 68 deaths, 37 were peaceful residents. The number of those wounded in these incidents amounted to at least 195 persons, including 65 civilians. Five terror acts in Dagestan were committed by suicide bombers.

The territory of the republic saw three explosions and terror acts, which resulted in 22 deaths; 19 of the casualties were civilians. In these incidents at least 163 persons were injured. Two terror acts were committed by suicide bombers.
