St PETERSBURG, April 5. /TASS/. Funerals of two residents of the Leningrad region, who died on Monday during a terrorist act on a metro train in St Petersburg, will take place on April 6 and April 7, the press service of the regional government told TASS.
"One of the victims will be buried on April 6 in the Vsevolozhsk district and the other, on April 7 in the town of Priozyorsk," it said. Municipal authorities in the districts where the two victims lived have taken care of all the arrangements and psychologists specializing in the assistance to people affected by emergency situations are working with the victims’ families now.
Leningrad region government says as many as nine residents of the region were inside the metro coach the explosion ripped through. Two of them died.
The regional authorities said earlier a 27-year-old man registered in the town of Tosno might be among the casualties that still remained unidentified but Russia’s Investigative Committee said later forensic experts had identified all those who were killed in the terrorist act.
Two residents of the region were discharged from hospitals in a satisfactory condition on Wednesday and four residents continued getting treatment. Physicians described the condition of three of them as serious.
An improvised explosive device of an unknown type was set off on a train moving from Technologichesky Institute towards Sennaya Ploshchad on Line 2 (Moskovsko-Petrogradskaya) of the St Petersburg metropolitan system at around 14:40 on Monday. The Investigative Committee qualified it as a terrorist act but officials said they were also probing into other possible versions.
Latest data indicates thirteen customers inside the train and the presumable suicide bomber died, while more than 50 customers were wounded.
