Vladikavkaz Blast Toll Rises to 19

The death toll in the Sept. 9 blast in North Ossetian capital Vladikavkaz rose to 19 after Leila Dzagoyeva died of injuries at a Moscow hospital, Interfax reported Monday.

Another four of the more than 200 victims were set to leave Moscow hospitals this week, but 111 remain hospitalized in North Ossetia, said Vladimir Selivanov, the republic’s health minister.

Meanwhile, local police released a composite image of the suicide bomber who blew up the car near Vladikavkaz’s central market. The man, whose body was mutilated by the blast, remains unidentified.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
