RUSSIA: Muslims celebrate Eid with suicide bombing

Vladikavkaz Car bomb kills 17, injures 100.

The MUSLIM holiday of Eid al-Fitr was darkened by a terrorist attack in the North Ossetian capital of Vladikavkaz. Early on Thursday a suicide car bomber hit the central market of the city. Only during the blast 16 people were killed including one child. More than 100 people were wounded.

On Thursday, meeting with Ravil Gainutdin, head of the Russian Union of Muftis, Prime Minister Vladimir Putin made the following statement. I find it very unfortunate that there are people who even on the day of the Muslim holiday commit such terrible crimes like the one which was committed in Vladikavkaz. The people who did this clearly have no heart or soul.
