A bomb has exploded under a passenger train in Russia's troubled Dagestan but no one has been killed, police said.
The attack comes just days after a similar blast killed 26 passengers on a train from Moscow to St Petersburg.
A train with eight passenger carriages was travelling from Siberian oil town Tyumen to Baku, the capital of Azerbaijan, when the bomb went off.
"It proceeded along its route despite the blast," a spokesman for Dagestani police said.
Local news agencies are quoting prosecutors as saying the bomb was the equivalent of 300 grams of TNT.
On Friday night (local time), a bomb derailed a high-speed Russian train on the main line between Moscow and Russia's second city, St Petersburg.
The attack raised fears of a new wave of bombings five years after a campaign in Moscow by Chechen rebels.
No one has claimed responsibility for that bombing, but security analysts say militant groups from Russia's mainly Muslim North Caucasus were the most likely culprits.
Dagestan and Ingushetia, plagued by corruption and poverty, have become the main targets of Islamist rebels as violence spills over from neighbouring Chechnya, where Moscow forces have fought two wars against separatists since the mid-1990s.
