SAMARA, December 30 (Itar-Tass) —— A detainee in the bomb blast at the marketplace in Samara confessed that he is involved in the making and planting of an explosive device in Penza on the premises of the criminal expert centre of the Russian Interior ministry in the Penza Region, the press service of the regional Federal Security Service department in the Samara Region said on Friday.
“On December 4, 2011, a homemade explosive device was found and then unarmed on the guarded territory of the criminal expert centre of the Russian Interior Ministry in the Penza Region. The explosive device had the similar structure as that detonated at the marketplace in Samara last summer,” the press service of the Federal Security Service department said.
On Thursday, December 29, a 25-year-old resident of the Ulyanovsk Region and a 23-year-old resident of Syzran in the Samara Region were detained on suspicions in the blast at the Samara marketplace. The Ulyanovsk suspect was released on recognizance not to leave the city and no accusations were brought against him. The Syzran suspect confessed in his participation in the making and planting of the explosive devices in Samara and Penza. He was charged with attempted murder and the illegal making of weapons, explosive substances or explosive devices. The detainee was put into custody.
The explosion went off at the Kirovsky marketplace in Samara on June 14, 2011. A 15-year-old teenager has found a three-litre metal box intended for paint near the trading points. When he lifted the box the blast detonated. The young man got facial injuries and was hospitalized. The fragments of the homemade explosive device with the timer and staffed with such striking pieces as nails and self-screws were found at the blast site. The detectives believe that only the detonator activated, but the main explosive device did not detonate.
A criminal case was opened over the blast for hooliganism.
