Ten people have died and more casualties could be coming in the next few hours after people’s plight remain in peril from a bloodbath overnight. Although the attack has yet to be called terrorism and the suspect(s) is still at large, this is what’s happening now.
People making their way into St. Petersburg this morning on the subway were blasted with a nail bomb in one of the train cars, moments before another exploded in a second car. Although the Russian government has yet to call it terrorism, the lethal device is a trademark tool of jihadists.
“People were bleeding, their hair burned,” a witness told Russia’s Life News, the BBC reported. “My girlfriend was in the next car that exploded. She said that he began to shake. When she came out, she saw that people were mutilated.”
Fox News reports, “Several stations in the northern Russian city have been closed and an evacuation is under way, administration officials said.” President Vladimir Putin will be arriving in the city today to address the situation.
Russia is slow to allow immigrants from the Middle east into their nation, but Putin has taken a leadership role in defeating ISIS. Last night, the Russians were hit by the very same violence feared by every nation in the world. The evil of ISIS is capable of striking anywhere and at any time, but one thing is for sure, Putin will bring the fight back to the Islamic State.
