ST. PETERSBURG, April 4. /TASS/. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said late on Monday he knows nothing about Belarusian investigators allegedly sent to help probe into the St. Petersburg metro blast.
"Why Belarusian? Obviously they have been confused with a big Belarusian delegation that has arrived for talks," he told journalists. "At least, I know nothing about it."
Belarus’ ONT television channel said on Monday officers of the Belarusian Investigative Committee would be commissioned to Russia to help investigate St. Petersburg’s metro bombing.
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.
According to the National Anti-terrorist Committee, the blast claimed 11 lives. Forty-five people were injured.
