MOSCOW - Bomb blasts killed the wife of a local Federal Security Service (FSB) officer and a suspected Islamist militant on Monday in the capital of Russia's turbulent North Caucasus province of Dagestan, Russian news agencies reported.

An Islamist insurgency, business and political disputes and clan feuds result in daily violence in the mostly Muslim region on the Caspian Sea in southern Russia.

The suspected militant was killed when a bomb he was making exploded during the night in an apartment in provincial capital, Makhachkala, state-run Itar-Tass reported, citing local police.

Shortly after 9 a.m. a car bomb blast killed the wife of a colonel in the local branch of Russia's FSB and wounded the officer himself, Itar-Tass reported.
