    The Guardian — At least 10 people have reportedly been killed and many more injured after a blast rocked a metro station in St Petersburg.

    The metro service said an explosive device was detonated on a train at the Sennaya Ploshchad station in Russia’s second city. The entire metro network was shut down in the aftermath of the blast.

    Photographs from the scene showed a metro train in the station with one set of doors blown out, and a number of people on the ground with injuries.

    A source in the emergency services told Russian news agencies that “around 10 people were killed”, according to preliminary information.

    Andrey Kibitov, the head of the city governor’s press service, said 50 people had been injured.

    The Interfax news agency quoted law enforcement sources claiming the blast was caused by explosive material placed in a carriage.
