By

At least 10 people are dead after an explosion rocked at least one underground subway station in St. Petersburg, Russia, on Monday, multiple outlets reported. Reuters reports the blast occurred on two train cars that were moving between the Sennaya Ploshchad and the Tekhnologicheskiy Institut stations, citing government sources. All outlets are reporting that high amounts of casualties are expected, and that President Vladimir Putin, who is in the city to meet with Belarus’s president, has been informed of the incidents and would soon make a statement. According to the AP, Russia’s National Anti-Terrorist Committee said an explosive device was detonated “on a train that was traveling between stations.” Images from the scene show victims laying on the floor of a subway station, while a video shows commuters frantically attempting to locate others inside a mangled train.
