Bomb Suspect Charged

MAKHACHKALA, Dagestan — Prosecutors filed charges against a man suspected of involvement in an apartment bombing last year that killed 64 people in southern Russia, officials said Wednesday.

Alisultan Salikhov has been charged with terrorism and homicide in connection with the Sept. 4, 1999, bombing of an apartment building in Buinaksk, Dagestan, said Mirzabala Mirzabalayev, a spokesman for the local prosecutor’s office.

Salikhov’s trial is expected to open next month, he said.
