News agencies reported that there were three suicide bombers who attacked.

The suicide bombers blew themselves up near a police station in the village Novoselitskij in the Stavropol region.
According to the state-owned Russian news agency Sputnik, police in Stavropol has confirmed the attack on the police station.
Several Russian news agencies, however, reports that two of the three attackers were shot by police when they tried to enter the grounds of the police station, while the third managed to trigger a bomb outside the station.

Governor Vladimir Vladimirov in Stavropol said, according to to news agency TASS, that he did not rule out that what happened in Novoselitskij may be a diversion, and that one must be prepared for attacks elsewhere in the area.
He says that enhanced security at kindergartens, schools and hospitals in the region is now introduced.
