Three people were killed and three others injured in the capital of Dagestan, Makhachkala, on May 28, when a bomb turned a jeep belonging to Dagestan’s deputy prime minister, Said Amirov, into a heap of twisted metal. Amirov, who was in another car, was unhurt. This was the fourth attempt on Amirov’s life in three years. Dagestani police were quoted as saying it would be "premature" to link the assassination attempt to recent warnings by Amirov of the rising influence of Islamic fundamentalism in Dagestan.
