 OSCE vehicle blast killed American, injured German and Czech, - Hug

A United States national was killed in the yesterday's OSCE SUV blast near the village of Pryshyb in the militants-held territory of Ukraine's eastern Luhansk region.

Censor.NET reports citing Hromadske quoting OSCE Special Monitoring Mission (SMM) Principal Deputy Chief Monitor Alexander Hug.

Other victims include a citizen of Germany and a citizen of the Czech Republic. They were taken to a hospital in occupied Luhansk.

Hug clarified the explosion hit two SMM's vehicles carrying six observers. Both cars were armored.

He noted the blast scene was close to the contact line. Hug added the Trilateral Contact Group for the settlement of the situation in the Donbas had previously signed a memorandum on the prohibition of the use of mines in this part of the front.

On April 23, an OSCE SMM observer died after a mission's patrol vehicle tripped a land mine in the terrorist-held area of the Luhansk region.
