Police say assailants launched a 'terrorist attack' on a hydroelectric plant in southern Russia's troubled Caucasus region, killing two people. There have been no immediate claims of responsibility for the attack.

AFP- Two people were killed and another two wounded on Wednesday during a "terror act" at a hydroelectric power plant in Russia's volatile North Caucasus region, state-run power group RusHydro said, citing preliminary information.
   
"An explosion took place on the premises of the Baksanskaya hydroelectric power plant" early Wednesday, the company said in a statement. "Two guards died, two people were hospitalized."
   
As a result, the power plant's engine room was on fire, it said.
   
The power plant is located on the Baksan river in Kabardino-Balkaria, part of the North Caucasus region where Russian authorities are battling a Muslim insurgency.
