Two bombs ripped through crowds of after-work shoppers in Latvia's capital on Thursday, injuring 21 people and sending bleeding victims staggering into the street. Shoppers carried out others who had burns, broken limbs and cuts, police and witnesses said. Three people had serious injuries, police said. The bombs went off minutes apart about 5:30 p.m. at the five-story Centrs shopping center in the heart of Riga's picturesque, medieval-era old town, police spokesman Krists Leiskalns said.

A second bomb attack in four days by extremists in the Latvian capital, Riga, damaged property at the Russian Embassy on Monday and prompted Moscow to warn that "fascists are raising their heads" in the former Soviet republic. As with Thursday's predawn explosion at Riga's synagogue, no injuries were reported in the embassy blast, caused by plastic explosives detonated in a concrete trash bin outside the facility.
