VLADIKAVKAZ, Russia – Clashes between police and alleged militants left 10 more people dead Friday in Russia's volatile North Caucasus, even as stunned residents laid flowers in a square where a suicide car bombing killed 17 people and wounded more than 140 a day earlier.

In the North Caucasus republic of Dagestan, the Interior Ministry said police killed four suspected militants holed up in a house in the village of Makhargi. Three police officers were killed during the hours of battle.

Police also killed a suspected militant during a raid on a house in the town of Derbent, near the border with Azerbaijan, said Magomed Tagirov, a spokesman for the regional Interior Ministry's branch.

A Dagestani policeman and a prison warden were also shot to death in separate attacks, ministry officials said Friday.

The Vladikavkaz market was cordoned off Friday and investigators combed the site for clues about Thursday's bombing, which was so powerful that glass in nearby buildings shattered.
