An explosion in Kiev has injured an MP, while killing his bodyguard in an apparent assassination attempt


An explosion in Kiev has killed the bodyguard of a Ukrainian MP, while injuring him and two others. Officials are calling it an assassination attempt. The lawmaker was reportedly leaving a TV station in the Ukrainian capital, when a motorbike blew up nearby.

Ihor Mosiychuk, a member of the opposition Radical party and has been hospitalised, but did not suffer life-threatening injuries.

In recent years, Kiev has seen a number of attacks on high-profile politicians and journalists. Ukrainian authorities have mostly blamed the Russian secret services for plotting them.

No-one has so far said they were behind the blast, but police investigations are underway.
