People who got killed were sitting at the tables outside in front of a cafe, wounded people were inside the building that was also damaged. There were 2 APCs, but another one left the place of an accident, they were driving at high speed ignoring traffic lights. A crowd of about hundred people immediately was there. Some of the locals were angrily screaming at the terrorists who got to the place and secured the area. But there were a lot of militia on army trucks, so there were no protests, people were just watching. No OSCE observers have been seen at the place.
