[efoods]An explosion hit a railway in Russia’s restive Caucasus region of Dagestan early Monday, just days after an attack that killed 25 people aboard a passenger train in northern Russia.

“A railway was hit by an explosion before a train travelling from Tyumen to (Azerbaijan’s capital) Baku passed. The train did not derail, though it dragged the wagons some 150 meters along the damaged rails,” a local police official told Russian news agencies.

State-run rail monopoly Russian Railways said no one was injured in the blast.

“Traffic on the railway is closed,” it said in a statement. “Employees of Russian Railways, law enforcement bodies, the FSB (security services) and emergency services are working at the scene.”
