Ten people have been killed and several others seriously injured in a number of explosions at subway stations in the Russian city of St Petersburg.
Russian news agencies have reported the blasts were situated at the Sennaya Ploschad and nearby Tekhnologichesky Institut stations in the centre of the city. Images shared on Facebook, and Russian/Slavic social media site VK feature pictures of train cars with their doors blown apart, while casualties lie strewn around the fuselage.
Russian president Vladimir Putin, who was within the city limits earlier today, has stated that all causes, including terrorism, are currently being investigated. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov stated that the president has since been moved to a secure location in the nearby city of Strelna.
A device containing shrapnel has been found at one of the explosion sites, and seven of St. Petersburg’s metro stations have since been closed to the public. Victory Park, Moscow Gate, Electrosila, Technological Institute, Sennaya Ploshchad, Frunzenskaya and Gostiny Dvor are all closed.
