Investigators on Thursday detained a suspect from a deadly September explosion at a Vladikavkaz market who was preparing another bombing, the Investigative Committee said.

Investigators have identified seven other people suspected of involvement in the Sept. 9 suicide bombing that killed 19 people and left more than 200 injured.
