MOSCOW, April 5. /TASS/. One person killed in Monday’s subway blast in St.Petersburg remains to be identified, a spokeswoman for the Russian Investigative Committee said on Wednesday.
"At the moment, the identities of two more victims have been established. Thus, only one person remains unidentified. The investigators will start returning the bodies to their relatives this morning," Svetlana Petrenko said, commenting on the Russian Investigative Committee chief Alexander Bastrykin’s meeting with a team of investigators.
During the meeting, investigators briefed Bastrykin about intermediate results of the ongoing investigation into the tragedy, that claimed the lives of 14 people and left 49 injured.
"At the moment, more than 40 eyewitnesses, including passers-by and subway employees were interviewed. Lots of objects and surveillance camera records have been obtained and are now being carefully studied by experts," the spokeswoman said.
An explosive device of an unknown type went off at about 14:40 Moscow time Monday on a subway train in St. Petersburg. The Russian Investigative Committee earlier described the blast as a terrorist attack, presumably carried out by a suicide bomber.
