Bomb Partly Derails Train Going To North Ossetia

29 May 2004 -- Russian officials say a bomb explosion injured at least one soldier as it partly derailed a passenger train traveling today from Moscow to Vladikavkaz, the capital of the province of North Ossetia near Chechnya.

Alan Doyev, a spokesman for the regional police, said the force of the blast derailed seven cars of the 18-car train.

He said it was not yet clear whether the explosive had been placed on the track or on one of the train's cars.
