Terrorist attack in St Petersburg kills 11

11 people have been killed in a terrorist attack on the metro system in St Petersburg, Russia.

Chechen rebels are suspected to be behind the bomb which exploded on a train between the Sadovaya and Sennaya Ploshchad stations with another found and disarmed near the nearby Ploschad' Vosstaniya station. Whether Chechens actually were behind the attack and whether or not they are linked to ISIS (as many Chechen separatists are) remains to be seen but Russian police have confirmed that it was a terrorist attack.

St Petersburg is Vladimir Putin's home town and he was in the city at the time of the attack.
