Russian security forces have made another arrest bringing to nine the number of suspects detained following the St. Petersburg metro bombing.


Russian law enforcement officials say they are questioning a new suspect in the hunt for the terrorists who attacked the Saint Petersburg metro on April 3.

A bomb killed 14 people and injured 49 others. The latest suspect brings to nine the number of people detained so far in the investigation who are suspected of collusion in the bombing.

Police have been probing into the past of Kyrgyz-born suicide bomber Akbarzhon Jalilov, who had taken Russian nationality, and looking deeper into his associates, but few details have been released about the state of the investigation.
