At least 14 people have died and many others have been injured after an explosion in the St. Petersburg metro.

The Daily Mail reports, "Russian citizen Akbarzhon Jalilov, 22, who was born in Kyrgyzstan, has been named by security services as the suspected attacked who also planted a second device hidden in a fire extinguisher that failed to explode."



Boston Marathon bombers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev were also born there.



The site also reports, "Kremlin officials said parts of the attacker's body had been found at the scene a day after a train was blown up between Sennaya Ploshchad and Sadovaya metro stations in Russia's second city."

Police believe he had close links to Islamists.

Health Minister Veronika Skvortsova said there were 47 victims and 6 being treated in hospitals are in critical condition. Among the victims is a 15-year-old girl with burns and a head injury.



US President Donald Trump called the deadly attack an "absolutely terrible thing" that is "happening all over the world".



We'll keep updating this story as more details come in.

The Islamic warlord Tamerlane invaded and utterly destroyed Chechnya during the 14th century AD. The Chechens have been at war with Sunni Islam ever since. There have been more than 2,000 terrorist attacks committed in the name of Islam since 1992 in Russia; the worst being the lethal torture and rape of hundreds of innocent children with knives, broken bottles and rifles, etc. in Beslan in 2004. Remember Beslan. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=ZLeHk3-OIxw

And yet another murdering son of a bitch from the religion of peace. At least Putin will give him a fair trial before having him shot.

Keith Barnes Putin does have his own problems with them , i do not know why so many will not admit that. If his army is full of them , he cannot deal with them properly.

Little war zones all around the world for islam and it’s most dedicated muslim followers. No authority figures pushing to fight the islamic military force that is effectively pecking away at everyone’s nerves day after day after day…. The sole purpose to wipe out all non muslims by Islam is hidden behind a fake “peaceful” religious front and we (all non-muslims) are it’s enemy and could be blown away at any time. Ban islam from the face of the earth before it’s way too late. It’s the only thing that’s going to stop all this violence and death.

Before the photo was released, I think many of us already knew what the suspect looked like.

48% of the Russian Army are Muslims.

Nothing like real Military training for a wannabe Terrorist.

Putin is just as stupid as our own resident Idiot, J.C. Trudeau, Super Star.

Sorry Mr Putin, I did not intend to insult you so badly, with that comparison.

Trudeau, Merkel, Obama, Pelosi, Clinton, Theresa May, et al; will all say “nothing to do with islam”.

Putin will deal with this accordingly… He has no qualms about maintaining order inside his own borders.
But this could be part of the UN agenda to make Russia weak inside itself while the UN applies pressure while sitting and waiting on the borders of Russia.!
Nothing would surprise me at this point
