MOSCOW, April 4. /TASS/. Investigators are checking possible involvement in St. Petersburg metro bombing of two natives of Central Asia, a man and a girl, a source in law enforcement agencies told TASS late on Monday.

"They came to the attention of law enforcers after checking records of video surveillance cameras. Their identities are being verified," the source said.

According to preliminary data, they are natives of Central Asia, both aged about 20. "Suspect profiles will be sent to police stations," the source added.
