 Here in London, we have free access to the Russia Today TV station.  The launch failure is the major news item. They report it was due to a third stage failure. Even had an interview with an eye witness who said the area where it crashed was an area popular with people picking nuts in the summer.
The next lauch was due on October 28th and they are speculating this will be brought forward.

The report is probably available on the web site www.rt.com

They  also said that a satellite launched on August 18th (The EDUSAT launch?) suddenly veered off course. - Not sure if this was a single satellite or the whole launch vehicle
