ST. PETERBURG, April 3. /TASS/. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov refrained from answering a journalists’ question whether President Vladimir Putin is going to convene an emergency meeting following Monday’s blast in the St. Petersburg metro.
"We will inform you if it happens," he only said.
Traditionally, the Russian president holds meetings with the permanent members of the Russian Security Council once a week. "Such a meeting will be held this week too," Peskov confirmed.
A bomb went off at about 14:40 Moscow time on Monday in a metro train car when the train was moving from Tekhnologichesky Institut Station to Sennaya Ploshchad Station in St. Petersburg. The Russian Investigative Committee has qualified the blast as a terrorist attack, but other versions are looked into.
Information about the dead and injured is contradictory. According to the Russian health ministry, 37 people were injured and ten were killed (seven died on the scene, one died on the way to hospital and two more - in hospitals). The press service of the St. Petersburg administration, for its part, says 43 injured passengers were taken to hospital, but gives no data on fatalities.
