Two explosions have ripped through two metro station at rush hour in Moscow. The death toll say officials stands at 37 at the moment as rescue work continues. No group has claimed responsibility for the blasts.
The first explosion tore through the second carriage of a train as it stood at the Lubyanka station. An hour later the second blast wrecked the second carriage of a train waiting at the Park Kultury station.
As the emergency services continue their grim task no group has claimed responsibility. Suspicion could fall on the groups from Russia’s North Caucasus where Moscow is fighting a growing Islamist insurgency.
It’s believed from reports the blasts were suicide attacks. The first happened close to Russia’s main domestic security service, the FSB. The trains were packed at the time with at least 23 people injured.
