    MOSCOW, November 10 (RIA Novosti) – An explosion in the Stena rock-pub in Kharkiv, in eastern Ukraine, has left 11 people injured, according to a statement released by the Ukraine’s State Emergency Service.

    All of those injured have been taken to hospital. Earlier, on Sunday, the Ukrainskaya Pravda newspaper reported that eight people were wounded, adding that three of the injured are in a serious condition.
