    St. Petersburg metro explosion: At least 10 dead in Russia blast




    Moscow (CNN)At least 10 people were killed in a blast on the St. Petersburg metro Monday, three state-run Russian news agencies said. Authorities say the explosion is a terrorist attack.

    An explosion tore through a train as it was traveling between two stations in Russia's second-biggest city, injuring dozens more.
    A second device was found and defused at another station, Russia's Anti-Terrorism Committee said. No group has claimed responsibility for the attack, which led to the shutdown of the city's metro system.
    President Vladimir Putin, who had been in St. Petersburg earlier in the day, laid roses at a makeshift memorial with candles outside the bombed metro station.
    Earlier, Putin said all causes were being investigated, including terrorism. Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev described the explosion as a "terrorist act."

    Russian intel did a good job of preventing attacks, they have been in Syria for years and thus far no big attacks until this one today.

    indeed we have prevented major attacks until this one. the problem is most Chechens and Dagestanis and so on go to Syria to get combat training and then come back to Chechnya and Dagestan to attack security forces and other targets.
