The website of the North Caucasus insurgency says the suicide bombing of the police department in Nazran, Ingushetia, on August 17 was carried out by Said Abu Saad al-Buryati, RFE/RL’s North Caucasian Service reports.

Buryati, or Said Buryatsky, also known by his legal name, Aleksandr Tikhomirov, was an ethnic Buryat from the capital of Russia’s Republic of Buryatia, Ulan-Ude, in Siberia.

He joined the Chechen insurgency two years ago and was considered the main spiritual leader of the rebels in the North Caucasus.
