ORENBURG, December 17 (Itar-Tass) — Investigative bodies of the Orenburg region have initiated criminal proceedings into a car explosion incident on charges of murder committed in a way which is dangerous to other people.
The incident occurred three kilometers away from the town of Orsk on Sunday morning. A KIA Magentis car that was moving on the Orsk-Aktyubinsk highway went into a ditch and was then caught by fire.
