St Petersburg, Russia gets an "allahu akbar" Muslim terrorist attack in the Metro

As well as the the bomb that killed 14 and injured some 45, a second bomb was found and defused two stations away.

"A suspected Improvised Explosive Device explosion inside a car of the St. Petersburg Metro system has resulted in casualties among passengers. The entire transit system has been shut down as bomb squads and rescuers are responding 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 confirmed, adding that there was an unspecified number of fatalities from the blast."



"A Russian suicide bomber originally from mainly Muslim Kyrgyzstan detonated the explosives in a St Petersburg train carriage that killed 14 people and wounded 50, authorities said on Tuesday.

"The suspect had radical Islamist links, Russian media cited law enforcement officials as saying, raising the possibility Monday's attack could have been inspired by Islamic State, which has not struck a major city in Russia before [although it planted a bomb on a Russian airliner returning from Sharm El Sheik in Egypt in 2015]. So far, no-one has claimed responsibility for the blast.

"Kyrgyz officials identified the suspect as Akbarzhon Jalilov, born in the city of Osh in 1995, and Russian officials confirmed his identity, saying he had also left a bomb found at another metro station before it went off."
