    Russia- 10 dead and 50 injured in subway explosion

    At least one of the explosions have only seen plural used in one story at this point

    but then explosions in two train carriages

    An explosion rocked a subway train in the center of St. Petersburg, Russia’s second-largest city, killing at least 10 people and injuring dozens, in what may have been a terrorist attack, authorities said.

    improvised bomb filled with shrapnel detonated inside a train between two stations i

    train carriage torn open, with bloodied and dazed passengers lying on the platform as smoke billowed.

    bomb appeared to have been left in the train, not detonated by a suicide bomber,

    entire subway network was closed

    All the signs of a terrorist attack are there,”



    In 2010, Moscow’s subway was targeted by suicide bombers that killed 40 people in coordinated attacks. The last major attacks took place in December 2013, just weeks before the start of the Sochi Winter Olympics,

    Islamic State has repeatedly threatened to stage attacks in Russia in revenge for the Russian bombing in Syria t

    Russian official called the blast terror attack, and a source tells the Russian news agency RIA that the explosive device used was "homemade and small capacity."

    Was hoping it would be a mistake but it seems like there were two bombs, after all. And now some sources are reporting that there was a third, unexploded bomb found as well.

    The agency that runs the subway said several stations in the northern Russian city were closed and that an evacuation was underway.

    Social media users posted photographs and video from a subway station in the city centre, showing people lying on the floor outside a train with a mangled door. Frantic commuters reached into doors and windows, trying to see if anyone was there and shouting "Call an ambulance!" The explosion happened between Sennaya Ploshchad and Tekhnologichesky Institut stations.
    Putin was expected to hold talks with the Belarusian president later in the day.

    • Claims bomb left in briefcase before owner moved carriages

    Commuters were evacuated from the subway within about an hour of the first reports of the blast coming in.



    • Another unexploded device 'also found on subway system'
    • Putin was due to be in city meeting Belarusian counterpart

    Sadly, the explosion(s) were probably magnified by the confined space deep under ground of the subway. This causes an explosion to blow up, then blow down again as the force is unable to dissipate into the air.

    CARIIS this makes me think of what you so often say - what we call terrorism they call war, and what we call war they call terrorism.

    I'm not suggesting ISIS are not terrorists, not that at all.

    CNN is stating the Russian Prosecutor is calling this attack an "act of terror". Russia is the main target for jihadi terrorist attacks not the United States.

    Ten people died — seven in the subway system, one while en route to a hospital and two while they were being admitted to an emergency room — and 39 others were injured, the health minister, Veronika Skvortsova, announced live on television. Some of the wounded included children, she said.

    Another bomb was found at a nearby station, Vosstaniya Square, but was disarmed, a spokesman for the National Anti-Terrorism Committee, Andrei Przhezdomskiy, said on television. The city announced that all surface transportation would be free until further notice, and officials urged residents to remain vigilant.

    “I appeal to you, citizens of St. Petersburg and guests of our city, to be alert, attentive and cautious, and to behave in a responsible manner in light of events,” Georgi S. Poltavchenko, the governor of St. Petersburg, said in a statement. As the old imperial capital, the city has the status of a federal governorate.

    The governor declared a three-day period of mourning, starting on Tuesday.

    Coward. Dropping a bomb and scurrying off like a filthy rat. The lack of humanity in attacks like this never ceases to shake me. Monsters live and breath the same are we do. They look like just another commuter on the train, blending in just to cause pain. The worst type of human are those without an ounce of empathy and on a crusade of pain. May god bless those killed and injured. This is so senseless.
