UNITED NATIONS, April 3. /TASS/. UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has condemned St. Petersburg’s metro blast on Monday, saying those behind the attack must be held accountable.
"The Secretary-General condemns today’s bombing in the St. Petersburg metro. He extends his deepest sympathy and condolences to the families of the victims and to the Government and the people of the Russian Federation. Those responsible for this appalling act must be held accountable," Spokesperson for the Secretary-General Stephane Dujarric told reporters.·
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 Minister of Health Veronika Skvortsova, 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.
