Nine Dead After Explosion on Saint Petersburg Metro


ISIS bombs metro station in Saint Petersburg, Russia.

Shortly after the exposions went off, killing at least nine people and injuring dozens more, social media was exploding with comments in support of the bombing from members of ISIS.

Via Breitbart:

“We ask Allah to bless the operation by the lions of the Caliphate, we ask Allah to kill the Crusaders,” said an ISIS supporter from the terror group’s al-Minbar online forum. Others celebrated by saying that the Monday bombs made for “a metro to hell for the worshipers of the Cross” and claimed that the attacks — which are still under investigation by Russian authorities — were revenge for Russia’s backing of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s fight against ISIS and other rebel groups in Syria’s civil war. Russian airstrikes and shelling in Syria have killed hundreds of people and reduced entire areas to rubble.

Watch Here:

Vladimir Putin, President of Russia, released a statement of condolence to the famalies who lost someone in this bombing.

As you know, there has been an explosion on the St Petersburg metro. People have been killed and injured. I would like to express condolences and sympathy to the families of those killed and injured.

I have spoken with representatives of our security agencies and the FSB Director. Our law enforcement and security agencies are working to establish the causes of the explosion and to provide their assessment of the situation. The city authorities, and if needed, the federal authorities, will take the necessary measures to help the families of those affected by the blast.

The reasons behind it are not clear yet, and so it would be premature to speak about them. The investigation is ongoing. Of course, we always consider all scenarios, including accidental or criminal action, and above all, those of a terrorist nature. The ongoing investigation will soon provide answers regarding the causes of this tragedy.
