    MOSCOW, February 15, 2004. (RIA Novosti) - The version concerning the terrorist act in Transvaal aqua park, where the roof collapsed the previous day, has not been confirmed, Moscow Prosecutor General Anatoly Zuyev said.

    "The investigation group started interrogating the park's authorities. The identification of bodies began at 10:00 with investigators, experts and psychiatrists present," the General Prosecutor disclosed. According to him, three bodies have already been identified.

    221 victims of the incident have been hospitalized, with four out of them in a grave condition, Zuyev noted.

    At present, expert constructors are gathering samples of the building materials for the further technical-building expertise, he added. The operative investigation group will then continue the inspection of the ruined facility.

    "There are still no grounds for the version of the terrorist act. We hope to find out the real cause of the accident after the expert examination," the General Prosecutor noted.

    According to the latest information, 23 people were killed in the accident.
