Suspect in 1999 Buinaksk bombing brought to Russia

[JURIST] Dagestani native Magomed Salikhov was brought to Russia on Saturday after his arrest in Azerbaijan for alleged involvement in a 1999 bombing in Buinaksk that killed 64 people and helped instigate Moscow's more recent military campaign in neighboring Chechnya. Two other men, including Salikhov's brother Alisultan, were convicted in 2001 for their involvement in the bombing that targeted an apartment building housing the families of Russian army officers. A date for Salikhov's trial has not been set. AP has more.
