Bomb Explodes at Ingush Funeral

A bomb went off during a funeral Wednesday in an Ingush village, injuring at least seven, Interfax reported.

The funeral for Lyudmila Terekhina and her two adult children, who were shot dead in their home Monday, was almost over when 50 to 100 grams of TNT exploded in the village of Ordzhonikidzevskaya, Ingush police chief Mussa Medov told Interfax.

Ingushetia's prosecutor, Yury Turygin, said the explosion had been classified as a terrorist act, Itar-Tass reported.

Medov said seven were injured in the attack, including four law enforcement officers and a woman whose leg was torn off. Akhmed Nakastoyev, head of the Sunzhensky district, where the village is located, put the number of those injured in the attack at 10, Interfax reported.

Neither Medov nor Nakastoyev would offer any clues as to who might have planted the bomb targeting people attending the funeral.
