An explosion rocked the St. Petersburg Metro midday on Monday, killing 10 passengers and injuring dozens of others.
The explosion happened as a train was traveling between the Tekhnologichesky Institut and Sennaya Ploshchad stations in the city center.
The entire St. Petersburg subway system was shut down following the incident, which saw Russia’s Investigative Committee launch a terrorism probe.
