Blast injures 41 near Kremlin

MOSCOW -- An explosion at the luxurious Manezh Shopping Center across from the Kremlin injured 41 here on Aug. 31.

An "anti-consumerism" group took credit for the attack, but Russian officials here would not rule out criminal or political motives. No tourists were affected by the blast.

Operators here said security measures, which already are tight, would be heightened.
