Surveillance footage of suicide bombing in Vladikavkaz, capital of the Russian republic of North Ossetia

A suicide car bomber hit the central market of a major city in Russia's North Caucasus on Thursday, killing at least 17 and wounding more than 130 people in one of the worst attacks in the volatile region in years, officials said.

The attacker detonated his explosives as he drove by the main entrance to the Vladikavkaz market, according to the Emergency Situations Ministry.

At least 17 people, including the suicide bomber, were killed and 133 were wounded in the explosion, said Alexander Pogorely of the Emergency Situations Ministry's branch in southern Russia. He said 98 of the injured were hospitalized, many in grave condition.

The market attack came as Muslims were preparing to celebrate Eid al-Fitr, a holiday marking the end of the holy month of Ramadan.

"The crimes like the one that was committed in the North Caucasus today are aimed at sowing enmity between our citizens," Prime Minister Vladimir Putin said in televised remarks during a meeting met with Russia's top Islamic cleric. "We mustn't allow this."

Russia's North Caucasus region has been gripped by violence stemming from two separatist wars in Chechnya and fueled by endemic poverty, rampant official corruption and police abuses.

    What? The overwhelming majority of the Ossetians are Christians.

    For the attacker: He was for sure a "celebrating" Muslim. I hope they fill his coffin not only with his body parts, but with pig shit too.

    • Yes, but Vladikavkaz is a very interethnic city. Many people killed and wounded in this terror attack were Georgians, Armenians and Moslems from various regions of the North Caucasus.

  • I have often wondered why we bow down to the raidcal muslims, look at what is going on with that pastor in America at the moment, sure, what he is doing is wrong, but, Bibles are burnt on a regular basis in Arabic countries, i see no mass protests there. Can you imagine the outrage that Muslims would create if some radical Christians started carrying out suicide bombings in their Countries? Why do we have to put up with their stoneage crap, why are we happy to sit back and watch them say on tv t More..

  • Remember, our government doesn't allow us to dislike muslims. We are supposed to bend over and let them take us in the ass. I say screw that. Start letting the mother f*ckers know they are not welcome in this country. Europe is waking up. Maybe we can too before it's too late.

  • Muslims need to be exterminated like rats. There is nothing good that comes out of Islam. Just death and destruction.

    There time is coming. Just in the past several years, the world as a whole is getting more angry by the day.

    Islam wants to dominate. Face it. They breed like rats and try converting everyone to their sick cult.

    If you deny, you should die. Nice people.

    Allah is a demon.
