font size    

The identities of nine victims in the Moscow market blast on Monday have been confirmed, the Russia's Interfax news agency reported on Wednesday.

The Interfax, citing local medical officials, said that the dead included citizens from Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Belarus and Russia, without Chinese nationals. So far, more than 30 people injured in the blast are still hospitalized.

Chinese Counsellor Wang Zhen told reporters on Tuesday that seven Chinese were injured in the explosion. Of the seven, one was in critical conditions, another seriously injured, four others moderately injured, and the remaining one suffered only light injuries.

But the embassy has not received any official information from the Russian authorities about deaths of Chinese people, Wang told Xinhua.

Eight people, including two children, were killed when the explosion hit the Eurasian section of Cherkizovsky market in northeast Moscow on Monday morning, and the other two died at hospital. The explosion also injured 55 others.

Russia's Information Agency, citing Moscow city Prosecutor Yury Syomin, reported earlier that the dead included five Chinese nationals and one Vietnamese citizen.
