Austin American-Statesman - - THURSDAY BRIEFING -

MOSCOW — Mil­i­tants at­tacked a hy­dro­elec­tric power plant in Rus­sia’s restive North Cau­ca­sus re­gion, killing two guards be­fore set­ting off sev­eral bombs that forced the fa­cil­ity to be shut down, in­ves­ti­ga­tors said. Be­tween three and five armed men raided the plant in the Kabardino-Balka­ria re­gion. They shot the two guards and then planted at least four bombs, which de­stroyed three gen­er­a­tors but failed to cause a breach in the dam, of­fi­cials said.
