ROSTOV-ON-DON, Russia — A car exploded Thursday near the central market of a major city in Russia's restive North Caucasus region, killing at least five people and wounding 20, officials said.

There was no immediate information on whether the car that exploded in Vladikavkaz had been rigged with explosives or if the blast was due to other causes. The market and its surrounding blocks has been the target of several bomb attacks over the past dozen years, in which scores of people have died.
