Ukraine's premier survives car bomb blast

Ukrainian Premier Pavlo Lazarenko escaped unhurt but shaken after a bomb explosion damaged his car on the way to Kiev's Boryspil airport, Ukrainian and Western agencies reported on July 16. The apparent assassination attempt took place as the prime minister's motorcade was overtaking a bus. Both the trunk of his car and another vehicle in his entourage were damaged. Lazarenko was examined at the scene and then transported in another car to the airport, where he boarded his scheduled flight to Donetsk. Authorities said the blast was triggered by a remote-controlled bomb detonated from a nearby car.
