WASHINGTON, April 3. /TASS/. US President Donald Trump called a ‘terrible thing’ the blast on the St. Petersburg metro on Monday.
A "terrible thing - happening all over the world - absolutely a terrible thing," he said in reply to reporters’ queries during talks with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi at the White House.
A bomb went off in on Monday afternoon in the tunnel between two stations - Tekhnologichesky Institut and Sennaya Ploshchad. Investigators have qualified the explosion as a terrorist attack, but other possible 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.
