Blast in Russia's North Ossetia province kills 11

Post by Silverback »

ROSTOV-ON-DON, Russia – An explosion hit a minibus unloading passengers in the capital of Russia's North Ossetia province Thursday, and officials said 11 people were killed in what they called a terrorist attack.

Prosecutors say the blast may have been set off by a female suicide bomber.

A duty officer at the regional Emergency Situations Ministry branch, who was not authorized to give his name, said the blast was caused by a roadside bomb. But the press service of the North Ossetian chief prosecutor's office said there were indications a woman seen with a bag may have triggered the explosion.

The explosion was the deadliest in years in North Ossetia, which borders war-scarred Chechnya as well as Georgia's breakaway South Ossetia region, the focus of the August war between Russia and Georgia.

The province was the site of the 2004 Beslan school attack, which killed more than 330 people, and of several bomb blasts since the start of Russia's wars against Chechen separatists over a decade ago.

More likely an excuse for the Russians to invade Georgia.
