Twin sui-cide bombings on Moscowsubway in March killed 40people and wounded over 100.The market and its sur-rounding blocks has been thetarget of several bomb attacksover the past dozen years, inwhich scores of people havedied.Vladikavkaz is the capi-tal of the Russian republic of North Ossetia. Although it isless plagued by violence thansome other republics in theregion such as Chechnya andDagestan, North Ossetia hassuffered ethnic tensions andfrequent terror attacks.It was the scene of the2004 Beslan crisis, in whichChechen terrorists took hun-dreds of hostages at a school— a siege that ended in abloodbath killing more than330 people, about half of themchildren.The Vladikavkaz marketwas bombed in 1999, killing55.
