Car Blast in Moldovan Capital Chisinau Kills – Connection With Elections?

Posted by Info on 07/06/2011

Moldovan tennis federation chief Igor Turcan,38 has been killed in a car explosion near the federation headquarters in the capital, Chisinau when he was passing the parked car, a Lada, when it blew up and burst into flame.
The tennis chief died in hospital of wounds to his legs, stomach and head

The police were not ruling out the possibility that a bomb had been set off.

Mr Turcan had business interests in Moldova’s construction sector and also headed a campaign for an independent candidate, Mihai Godea, in last weekend’s election for Chisinau mayor.

“We find it strange that the car that exploded was parked near the office of the Moldovan tennis federation although it did not belong to any of our employees,” Ms Tauber, his deputy said.
