Doctors diagnosed the terrorist attack victims with mine blast injuries.
The explosion affected about 70 people, TASS reported citing a law enforcement source. 10 of them died.
Doctors diagnosed the terrorist attack victims with mine blast injuries, Interfax reported citing a source. According to the ICR, the explosive device detonated in the college canteen. The device was packed with projectiles.
“All victims were diagnosed with mine-explosive injuries; in addition, striking elements were found in the bodies of people and at the scene. They were allegedly packed in the explosive device,” said the agency source adding that the toll could increase.
Most of those killed in the explosion at the Polytechnic College were students, said Lyudmila Lubina, the ombudsman for the Republic of Crimea as quoted by TASS.
“Indeed, we’ll be working with the families, providing psychological help, since the dead ones were mostly children. I’m going to try to get on a plane to go there and consult them on the spot,” she said.
