Edit: Death toll changed from 10 to 11
Edit 2: Death toll jumped from 11 to 14, 49 people were injured over the original 45 and now 10 people are in critical condition over the 6 that were critical when I first posted.

A suspected bomb blast inside a train in the St. Petersburg Metro killed ten passengers and injured dozens of others. The entire Metro system was shut down as bomb squads and rescuers responded to the emergency.

The explosion happened as the train was travelling between the stations Tekhnologichesky Institut and Sennaya Ploshchad of the St. Petersburg Metro, the National Antiterrorism Committee (NAC) confirmed.


According to health officials, the victims being treated in hospitals vary in age from teenagers to as old as 70. They are suffering from burns, blunt head traumas, shrapnel injuries and lung damage.


Alleged photos of the IED surfaced on social media. They show a medium-sized leather bag, which apparently held a container filled with explosives, with ball bearings wrapped around it.


Different news outlets have the death toll and number injured different, with some mentioning 10 dead and others mentioning 12 dead. President Putin was actually a few miles away from the bombing on official business.

Edit 3: The bomber has been identified and was not the suspect that was shown across news outlets when the attack happened. The image below is the bomber.
