Flags are at half-staff in the Russian Caucasus city of Vladikavkaz and stunned residents are laying flowers in a rubble-strewn square where a suicide car bombing killed 17 people and wounded more than 140.
Thursday's bombing on the edge of the central market of the capital of the North Ossetia republic was the most serious attack in Russia since the March subway bombings in Moscow that killed 40.
North Ossetian health minister Vladimir Selivanov said Friday that 107 wounded people were in local hospitals and 11 severely injured victims had been flown to Moscow, according to state news agency ITAR-Tass.
In Dagestan, another republic in the violence-plagued Caucasus, officials said a policeman and a prison warden were shot to death in separate attacks.
