MAKHACHKALA, Russia — Russian President Dmitry Medvedev made a surprise visit to the violence-wracked province of Dagestan in the northern Caucasus region Thursday, telling authorities to use tougher, "more cruel" measures to fight terrorism.

Earlier Thursday, an explosion killed two suspected militants and wounded a third in Dagestan. Police say the men may have been transporting a makeshift bomb, and suffered a so-called "work accident".

Medvedev told local officials, "the measures to fight terrorism should be expanded, they should be more effective, more harsh, more cruel."

Russia has been struck by two major terrorist attacks this week. On Wednesday, two suicide bombings killed 12 people in Dagestan and on Monday, suicide bombers killed 39 people and injured more than a hundred in attacks on the Moscow subway.
