ROSTOV-ON-DON, March 23. /TASS/. Police of Russia’s southern city of Rostov-on-Don have evacuated people from two railway stations and a bus station over security concerns, a source in local police told TASS on Wednesday.

"People from the central bus station, main and suburb railway stations were evacuated after a phone call reported an explosive there," the source said. "The police are checking the sites."

TASS earlier received report that the city’s airport, where the passenger jet crashed on March 19, was evacuated over same reason.

A FlyDubai’s Boeing 737-800 crashed at Rostov-on-Don’s airport in the small hours on March 19 during a second attempt to land in complicated weather conditions of strong side wind and rain.

The plane spent more than two hours in midair before attempting landing for the second time. It has not yet been established why the pilots opted not to land at an alternate destination.

The jet served regular Flight FZ 981 from Dubai. The passenger jet capable of carrying 189 passengers had 62 people aboard, including the crew. None survived.
