A bomb courier accidentally blew up a taxi in Russia's Dagestan region Tuesday, killing herself and wounding eight other people, police officials said. The blast occurred after the woman put the bag holding the explosive material onto the floor of the minibus taxi, said Saidulla Batdalov, an official from an investigative committee in Dagestan. The woman died immediately and eight other passengers were injured. Three were hospitalized, Batdalov said. The woman was likely a courier, and the blast occurred due to mishandling of the explosive material, Batdalov said. It was not immediately clear where the woman had intended to transport the bomb.
