An alleged terrorist attack has left at least 11 people dead in North Ossetia, Russia.

Officials say an explosion hit a minibus unloading passengers.

Twenty persons were also injured.

A duty officer at the regional Emergency Situations Ministry branch says the blast was caused by a roadside bomb.

The explosion is said to be the deadliest in years in North Ossetia, which borders war-scarred Chechnya as well as Georgia\'s breakaway South Ossetia region.

South Ossetia was the focus of the August war between Russia and Georgia.
