10 killed in blast at St Petersburg metro station

At least ten people were killed and 50 injured when an explosion tore through a train carriage in the St Petersburg underground system, Russian authorities said.

Interfax news agency quoted an unnamed source as saying the blast was caused by a bomb filled with shrapnel.

President Vladimir Putin, who was himself in St Petersburg for a meeting with Belarussian leader Alexander Lukashenko, said he was considering all possible causes for the blast, including terrorism. He was consulting with security services.

Ambulances and fire engines descended on Sennaya Ploshchad metro station. A helicopter hovered overhead as crowds gathered.
