At least four bombs, planted in trash cans, have exploded in the Ukrainian city of Dnipropetrovsk, Reuters reports.According to Interfax, 27 people have been injured. The regional prosecutor has opened a terrorism case.

There were other reports of more blasts on Twitter, though they remain unconfirmed.

Officials appear at a loss to explain who is behind the bombings. One fact to remember — the Euro 2012 football tournament will be held in the country this summer in just 6 weeks, with several games in Dnipropetrovsk.

The city is also the birthplace of now-jailed prime minister Yulia Tymoshenko.
