Two nail bombs on St Petersburg metro rip through carriages, killing at least 10 as Putin visits city for meeting
Quote:
The two blasts occurred between Sennaya Ploshchad and Sadovaya train station in St Petersburg, Russia
Ambulances raced to the scene of the carnage caused by nail bombs which were detonated on the network
Metro officials reported blast was from an improvised explosive device on board which included shrapnel
At least 10 people have been reported to have been killed by two explosions and 50 more have been injured

A man crawls away from the train as bloodied passengers attempt
to save those injured


Photos look pretty bad.

Chechens? ISIS?

Islamist suicide bomber's dismembered body is found: Former sushi chef from Kyrgyzstan 'who didn't say his prayers' is named as terrorist who murdered 14 as Kremlin calls St Petersburg train massacre a 'challenge to Putin'
Quote:
Russian Akbarzhon Jalilov, 22, born in Kyrgyzstan, named by security services as suspected suicide bomber
His home country has seen up to 500 join ISIS and the Boston Marathon bombers were also born there
The horrific blast occurred between Sennaya Ploshchad and Sadovaya train station in St Petersburg, Russia
At least 14 people were killed in yesterday's bomb blast and 50, including several children, were injured
Nobody has claimed responsibility, but previous attacks on Russia have been blamed on ISIS and Chechens
Bearded man first identified on CCTV as suspect hands himself in claiming innocence and faces lie detector
Kremlin has described the suicide bombing as a 'challenge' to Vladimir Putin, who was in the city at the time
Transport bosses have reopened four stations which were shut down after an anonymous attack warning
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...ody-found.html


Suspected bomber: Russian citizen Akbarzhon Jalilov, 22, left, who
was born in Kyrgyzstan, has been named by security services as the
suspected bomber who also planted a second device that failed to
explode. CCTV images of the suspect (right) have been released and
shows him in a red Parka jacket and carrying a rucksack
