DNIPROPETROVSK, Ukraine -- Health officials in the Ukrainian city of Dnipropetrovsk say seven victims of last month's explosions, including a child, remain hospitalized, but their lives are not in danger.

A total of 30 people, including 10 children, were injured by the four explosions that hit the eastern city on April 27.

There were no fatalities from the bombs, which were placed in rubbish bins.

President Viktor Yanukovych has announced a reward of 2 million hryvnyas ($250,000) for information that could lead to the capture of those responsible for what Ukrainian authorities have described as a terrorist attack.

There has been no claim of responsibility. Investigators have so far made no announcement about who is suspected of planting the bombs.
