A bomb exploded as a car was passing near a Russian military base Sunday, killing two people, and a soldier was killed in a separate blast in the same city where a military parade bombing exactly eight years ago killed scores.

The blasts in Kaspiisk took place on Victory Day, the country's most important secular holiday, when soldiers parade throughout the country to commemorate the 1945 defeat of Nazi Germany and to show off the country's military strength.
