MOSCOW, October 23 (Itar-Tass) — The Ministry for Emergency Situations is preparing a plane that will be sent to Vladikavkaz to airlift people, injured in an explosion near a check point on an administrative border of North Ossetia, to Moscow, the press and information department of the Russian Ministry for Emergency Situations told Itar-Tass.
An Il-76 plane is expected to fly to Vladikavkaz today to airlift the people who suffered in the explosion, to Moscow, said a representative of the Ministry for Emergency Situations. There are a medical module and five doctors from the Tsentrospas (Rescue Center) on board, the source said.
An explosion went off at a check point near the village of Chermen, Russia’s North Caucasian region of North Ossetia, at 4.20 am Moscow time Tuesday. Police ordered a VAZ-2109 car moving from Ingushetia to South Ossetia to stop at a check point on the administrative border for a check-up. When the driver's documents were being checked the driver activated an explosive device. The explosion killed one and wounded four policemen.
The building of the check-up point as well as the suicide bomber’s car were fully destroyed by the blast with an estimated power of 30 kilograms TNT.
