1999 Bombings Probe

A group of lawmakers convened an investigative committee Tuesday to look into the circumstances surrounding a series of still unsolved 1999 apartment bombings that killed over 300 people.

"We were forced to create a commission like this because the people in power aren't answering the questions put to them by mass media and individual lawmakers," said Sergei Yushenkov, a leader of the Boris Berezovsky-backed Liberal Russia party, which is heading the investigation.
