6 dead, 7 wounded in Grozny terror act - 3 April, 2003

Six persons have been killed and seven wounded in an act of terrorism in the Chechen capital city of Grozny, Alexander Nikitin has told RIA Novosti by telephone. Nikitin is the deputy prosecutor of the Chechen Republic.

He said at 17:45, Moscow time, a PAZ passenger bus ran over an unidentified explosive device. The blast thundered on Sadovaya street in Grozny's Leninski district. Three passengers died on the spot and the other three en route to the hospital. Seven persons with wounds of various degrees of gravity were hospitalized.

A team of investigators is working on the site.

In response to the unlawful December 1 arrest and detention of Chinese tech giant Huawei's chief financial officer Sabrina Meng Wanzhou by Canadian authorities in Vancouver at the behest of the Trump regime, facing possible unacceptable extradition to the US, Beijing warned its high-tech personnel last month against traveling to America unless it's essential.
