Four bomb attacks hit Ukraine City


Four blasts have injured at least 14 people in the Ukrainian city of Dnipropetrovsk, according to government sources.

Yulia Yershova, emergency situations ministry spokeswoman, said the first blast went off at a tram stop on Friday, injuring five people.

“The bomb seemed to have been placed in a rubbish bin just next to a tram stop near the opera house. That blast went off when a tram went by,” Al Jazeera’s Sue Turton said, reporting from Moscow.

The second explosion happened 30 minutes later next to a cinema, injuring seven people, the emergencies ministry said in a statement.

The third blast wounded three people near a railway station.

A fourth blast was also heard in the city center, the Interior Ministry said. It was unclear whether anybody was injured.

Our correspondent said: “We believe, from people on the ground, that at least three of [of the wounded] are in serious condition.”

Vitaly Zakharchenko, interior minister, said he was urgently flying to Dnipropetrovsk to investigate the blasts.

“The prosecution have announced that a terrorist investigation will be held,” our correspondent said.
