Ten dead in Moscow market blast
21 August 2006

An explosion has killed 10 people - including at least two children - at a Moscow market, Russian officials say.

At least 16 other people were injured in the blast at 1030 (0630 GMT) at the eastern Cherkizovsky market. It brought down a two-storey building.

There are conflicting reports about the cause of the explosion.

According to Moscow's First Deputy Mayor Vladimir Resin, a "makeshift explosive device" blew up. Earlier police blamed a faulty gas cylinder.

Latest reports from Moscow police say a bomb had been hidden in a bag and left in a cafe.

1. When I lived in Moscow, you saw stuff on fire all the time
and folks just ignored it. You'd see an old oil drum with stuff burning in it by the side of the road or something and folks just ignroed it. Or they'd set trash cans on fire to get rid of the trash.

The markets are full of propane tanks, etc.

I NEVER saw a fire truck heading to a fire.

2. Isn't it ashame
that 10 people can get blown up in Moscow and no one cares but if this happened in the US or Israel it would be 24/7 news?
