    A SUICIDE attacker rammed a truck through the gates of a Russian military hospital near Chechnya overnight, destroying the building, killing at least 33 people and wounding 76.

    The blast demolished the four-storey red-brick hospital in the city of Mozdok in Russia's North Ossetia region, the region's Emergency Situations Minister Boris Dzgoyev said.

    At the moment of the explosion, there were 115 people inside the building, which collapsed like a house of cards following the blast, Dzgoyev said.

    At least 33 people were killed, said Yevgeny Volodchinkov, an Emergency Situations Ministry official at the scene.

    Dzgoyev said at least 76 were injured, including personnel at the hospital and soldiers taken there after being wounded in Chechnya, where Russia's second war against rebels in a decade is nearly four years' old.
