The 2003 Stavropol train bombing was a suicide bomber blast which ripped through the commuter train in Stavropol Krai, Russia going from Kislovodsk to Mineralnye Vody as it was leaving Yessentuki on December 5, 2003. The explosion killed at least 46 people and injured more than 170.
As of December 2009, there were no arrests or convictions for this explosion.
Another train following the same route was bombed on September 3, 2003, killing 7 and injuring more than 80. Ibragim Israpilov, former local official from Chechnya, was convicted in 2004 for organizing that blast and sentenced to 20 years of imprisonment. He is sometimes erroneously reported as being behind the December 5 bombing.
