MOSCOW, April 3. /TASS/. Apple CEO Tim Cook has expressed condolences over the loss of lives in a blast on St. Petersburg's metro on Monday.
"My sincere condolences to all those affected by the tragedy in St. Petersburg," Tim Cook wrote in Russian in his Twitter account.
Искренние соболезнования всем, кого коснулась трагедия в Санкт-Петербурге— Tim Cook (@tim_cook) 3 April 2017
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 does not specify data on fatalities.
