yeesh, that don't look good.



The metro management said they received reports of an explosion inside the car, possibly of an improvised explosive device.



RUPosters
According to TASS, ten people were killed, about fifty injured. "Interfax" reports that two explosive devices, stuffed with destructive elements, were triggered. Their power was about 200 and 300 grams in the TNT equivalent.

According to evidences from social networks, earlier on the same day at the metro station "Chernaya Rechka" they found a suspicious object and closed it for a while.

I just grabbed these by screen shoot from a twitter feed in case they disappear.

I suggest people grab screen shoots where they can as early reports have a tenancy to vanish very quickly.

AP is quoting subway press office as "a device" (singular) was set off on a train.

CNN is running the two blast headline now.

Probably Chechens connected to ISIS.

Be ready for another Russia/Chechnya conflict in the coming weeks.

Question is domestic, or Islamic? There were mass arrests and protests just recently, right?
It will (publicly) go against Putin critics, I guess. More to gain for the government.
I'm not saying false flag, because I hate it, real people died, I just think it will help putting more opposition members behind bars.
Sad day.

Given Russia's involvement in Syria I'd suspect it's a reprisal attack.

In Russia? I don't think a terror suspect there could fart without at least two officials taking notes...

Obviously they can.
Russian police and intelligence agencies are only humans like the rest of us

Obviously, ones thoughts and prayers go out to the families of those who may have died, or may still die from their injuries, and to those left with lasting trauma of any kind as a result of this incident.

There are, however, things about the photographs which have been posted thus far, which may be of interest to anyone trying to pick detail out of this situation. One of the most interesting things about the images as provided thus far (which appear to be taken at the same platform, focusing on the same carriage and doorway thereto), is that only the door appears to have undergone catastrophic damage. Of course the victims do not appear to have fared particularly well, but in previous bombings involving a train carriage, it is very common indeed for the blast to have taken a massive bite out of the carriage, such that there is usually a gaping hole in one or both sides of it.

This must have been a relatively small device, either that or the train carriage is built like a bloody tank, because for only the doors to have undergone significant structural reorganisation in the blast is very unusual in an event like this. The Madrid bombings, the 7/7 bombings on the London Underground and other events like it, all feature explosions which utterly warped the shape of, or simply blew a large hole in the carriage. Far more than doors and windows were blown out, instead entire wall panels just blown clear away, the blast radius actually destroying everything in its immediate vicinity, turning whatever avoided utter vapourisation into flying shrapnel, traveling through the carriage, sometimes into neighboring carriages, there to cause bloody havoc, not to mention to anyone stood on the platform (assuming detonation at a platform, rather than during movement).

Any ballistics and explosives experts wishing to add their input on the matter of the extremely localised nature of this explosion, would no doubt be welcome!
