AFP - At least one person was wounded Monday when a bomb blew up under the car of the deputy interior minister of Russia's troubled southern region of Ingushetia, Russian news agencies reported.

The bomb went off when the car of Beslan Shadiyev was parked in the local interior ministry car park in Ingushetia's largest city Nazran.

The official's driver was wounded but Shadiyev appeared not to be in the car at the time, the reports cited security officials as saying.
