A homemade explosive device went off
A homemade explosive device went off near the home of an Ingush official, a police source in the southern Russian republic said on Monday.

The explosion occurred late on Sunday, in the village of Ikazhevo near Ingushetia's largest city, Nazran. The bomb had been planted in the yard of a house, belonging to Husein Sakalov, an aide to the Nazran prosecutor and son of the speaker of the republic's parliament.

No casualties have been reported. The house was slightly damaged.

Investigators are working at the scene.

Ingushetia has seen a rise in violence of late, including bombings and other attacks on police and officials, which have been linked to separatists in neighboring Chechnya and local criminal gangs.

On February 24 a senior aide to Ingushetia's chief prosecutor was killed and his wife injured when a gunman opened fire on his car.
