Moscow underground is hit by terrorists: At least 37 are killed.

March 29, 2010

We found this On Sky and ITN.

“A Moscow Emergency Ministry spokeswoman said the dead in the first blast included 14 people inside the train and another 11 people on the platform at Lubyanka station in the centre of the city.

Lubyynaka station is underneath the building that houses the main offices of the Federal Security Service, the KGB’s main successor agency.

A second explosion hit the Park Kultury station about 45 minutes later. City police spokesman Viktor Biryukov said at least 12 people were killed in that blast.

Television network Russia Today broadcast what it claimed was amateur mobile phone video taken outside Park Kultury, after the explosion.

The video appeared to show commuters anxiously waiting outside the station and an emergency service vehicle in the background. R

ussia’s top investigative body said terrorism is suspected in the blasts, although there has been no immediate confirmation of how the explosions happened.

The last time Moscow was hit by a confirmed terrorist attack was in August 2004, when a suicide bomber blew herself up outside a city subway station, killing 10 people.”

Memories of 7/7.
