MOSCOW, August 19 (Itar-Tass) —— The Russian Emergency Situations Ministry is sending a plane to Ingushetia for transporting persons injured in the suicide bomber attack to Moscow hospitals.
“An Ilyushin Il-76 jet of the ministry will depart from the Ramenskoye airfield in the Moscow region on Monday morning,” the ministry told Itar-Tass.
The plane will be carrying three medical modules and doctors of the ministry’s Centrospas unit and the Zashchita Russian Catastrophe Medicine Center.
Seven policemen died and 15 persons, among them twelve policemen, were injured in the suicide bomber attack at the funeral of their colleague. The wounded were taken to Malgobek hospital. The suicide bomber was carrying a hand-made explosive device equivalent to about 7 kilograms of TNT, he said.
The Emergency Situations Ministry said it was prepared to transport the wounded in the Sunday explosion in Ingushetia and the Saturday shooting incident in the Dagestani mosque. “Emergency Situations Ministry planes are on standby. They are prepared to transport the wounded from Ingushetia and Dagestan,” a ministry source told Itar-Tass earlier.
