Five Russian civilians and two policemen were reported injured on Friday in a restaurant attack in Dagestan which is home to insurgents who have threatened to strike next month's Winter Olympic Games in Sochi. 

Special forces officers guard the site of two blasts in the Dagestan's capital Makhachkala, early on May 4, 2012

"The first explosion came when a grenade launcher fired at the second floor of the restaurant. The second came when a parked car blew up," an interior ministry source in the mostly Muslim North Caucasus republic of Dagestan was quoted as saying by ITAR-TASS.
