At least eight killed in Chechnya bus blast: report

At least eight people were killed and 10 others wounded when a blast tore through a passenger bus in the Chechen capital Grozny. It was the first attack in the separatist Russian republic since a contentious referendum on a new constitution last month. “There are at least eight dead, but the toll is not final, some of the wounded who could die have been taken home by their relatives,” the official told an AFP correspondent in Nazran, neighbouring Ingushetia, by telephone. “Around 10 others have been taken to hospital, some of them in serious condition,” he said. Akhmad Kadyrov, the republic’s top administrator, immediately blamed the explosion on separatist guerrilla fighters although there was no initial claim of responsibility for the attack. Full Story
