Transdnestr explosion kills one, injures eleven

TIRASPOL, August 13 (RIA Novosti) - One person was killed and eleven others wounded in a trolley-bus explosion in the capital of Moldova's breakaway province of Transdnestr Sunday, the press secretary of the republic's interior ministry said.

Alla Ivanchenko said five injured persons were in a grave condition in an intensive care unit and another six were in a traumatic surgery department.

Transdnestr, which has a predominantly Russian speaking population, proclaimed independence shortly after the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991-92, sparking an armed conflict with Moldova that ended in a ceasefire agreement.

On July 6, at least seven people were killed and 30 injured after a suspected bomb ripped a minibus apart in the capital of the breakaway region, Tiraspol.
