Violence in the North Caucasus
May 13, 2010
Spring 2010 (Jan 1 – Apr 30, 2010) was more deadly than the same period in 2008 and 2009 with more than 200 fatalities due to incidents of violence. Most alarming, suicide bombings remained a regular occurrence, with six carried out in just twelve days – including the two in the Moscow Metro. In this report, “Violence in the North Caucasus: Spring 2010, On the rise, again?” we present our findings, all of which illustrate the scope and scale of instability in the region.
