    TBILISI, APRIL 6, 2004, (RIA Novosti correspondent) - A bomb exploded tonight in Georgia's capital, Tbilisi, in a compound occupied by Russian military officers. General Alexander Studenikin, head of the Russian Central Command in the Transcaucasia, was injured in the blast, reports Tbilisi Prosecutor Valery Grigalashvili.

    The bomb went off at about 8 p.m., just as Studenikin was riding past the compound in a car. Investigators working on the scene say that the bombing may well have been an assassination attempt.

    The wounded general is now in hospital, Georgia's Interior Ministry told RIA.
