Bomb Toll Rises to 4

Two people who were wounded in a series of bombings in the southern Stavropol region last week died in hospitals Monday, officials said.

The death of a 42-year-old man and 72-year-old woman brought the overall death toll from Friday’s blasts to four, said Emergency Situations Ministry spokesman Nikolai Bondaryov.

The three nearly simultaneous explosions killed two people outright and wounded 31 others in train and bus stations and a market in the towns of Pyatigorsk and Nevinnomyssk.

Police on Monday detained a man in relation to the explosions in both cities, Interfax reported. Earlier, authorities had arrested four suspects.
