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.

On January 4 there was an explosion at a military aid center in Odesa and the day before there was an explosion targeting freight cars carrying petroleum products at the Odesa-Peresyp railway station.

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.
