Another Bomb Explodes In Odesa


Another bomb has exploded in the Ukrainian Black Sea port city of Odesa causing damage to a nearby building but reportedly not resulting in any casualties.

The explosion happened late January 16 outside the Diamant Bank.

Local Interior Ministry spokesman Volodymyr Shablienko could only say an explosive device was placed outside the bank and detonated.

Investigators were still searching for information and evidence at the scene.

It was at least the sixth bomb to go off in the Odesa area in the last two months.

Ukrainian officials have called the bombings terrorist acts.

These explosions have happened as the Ukrainian government continues to battle pro-Russian separatists in the eastern part of the country.
