September 19, 2004|From Associated Press

MOSCOW — Police stopped a man driving a car wired with land mines and explosives in downtown Moscow early Saturday, Russian security officials said.

The man, detained about 1 a.m., told police he had been paid $1,000 to park two cars loaded with explosives along a Moscow street frequently used by top government officials, the duty officer at the Federal Security Service said.

The officer said the man later suffered a heart attack and died while in police custody, but he refused to elaborate.
