A regional official said it appeared the blast was carried out by a suicide bomber and Russia said it was launching an investigation into what it described as an “act of terror”.

“According to the information I have … the blast in Vladikavkaz has been organised by a suicide bomber who drove up to the entrance of the market in a Volga 3102 car,” Taimuraz Mamsurov, the head of the region, was quoted by the Interfax news agency as saying.

Vladikavkaz is the capital of the Russian republic of North Ossetia, which lies in the North Caucasus region.
