A man blew himself up and two others were shot dead as they attacked a police station in southern Russia, local security forces said.

Two attackers were killed by officers as they tried to get into the police station in the town of Novoselitskoye in the Stavropol region, but a third succeeded in setting off an explosive device he was carrying, a spokesman for the local Interior ministry branch told ABC News.

Despite the explosion, besides the attackers no one else was hurt in the assault, the spokesman said.

Russia’s National Counter-terrorism Committee told Interfax security forces had sealed off the area around the attack and that they were working to establish the attackers’ identities.

No group immediately claimed responsibility for the attack but Stavropol neighbors Russia’s restive North Caucasus region, where Russian security forces have been fighting a counter-insurgency against Islamic militants for around two decades. . . The Islamic State has pledged to carry out further attacks in Russia itself.
