Moscow market blast injures 13 people

Latest update : 2008-12-21

An explosion at an outdoor market in southern Moscow has injured 13 people and all but one have been hospitalised for their injuries, police sources say. The blast was apparently caused by a homemade explosive device.

AFP - Thirteen people were injured in an explosion at a market in southern Moscow, police said Sunday, raising an earlier toll of nine casualties.
   
Twelve of the 13 were in hospital, a police spokesman told AFP, adding that many were suffering burns.
   
Saturday's blast near the Prague metro station was set off by a home-made device, police said, adding that a criminal enquiry had been opened on the basis of hooliganism.
   
The home-made device was 50 grams TNT equivalent, said police spokesman Anatoly Lastovetsky.
   
Ria-Novosti news agency reported that police were looking for two men suspected of being behind the blast. Lastovetsky declined to confirm the report.
   
Russian television said Sunday an eight-year old girl was among the 13 injured.
