Pictured: First images of 'terror suspect' accused of planting a nail bomb which ripped through carriages on St Petersburg metro killing at least ten and injuring 50 while Putin visited the city The horrific blast occurred between Sennaya Ploshchad and Sadovaya train station in St Petersburg, Russia Ambulances raced to the scene of the carnage caused by a nail bomb which was detonated on the network Metro officials reported blast was from an improvised explosive device on board which included shrapnel At least 10 people are reported to have been killed by the blast and 50 including children have been injured These are the first images of the suspected terrorist accused of planting a nail bomb which ripped through carriages on a St Petersburg train killing at least ten and injuring 50 today. Several Russian media outlets have released the picture of the bearded suspect who is wearing a long, black top and a hat and is thought to have caused carnage by detonating the bomb that was packed with shrapnel. The terrifying incident took place on a train that was travelling between Sennaya Ploshchad and Sadovaya metro stations. Dozens have been injured, including children, as it was reported the man left a briefcase on a train before moving carriages moments before the deadly blast and a second explosive device was found and defused in a nearby station. Bloodied passengers were left strewn across the platform in the Russian city as emergency services scrambled to save those wounded by the bomb and the resulting shards of glass and twisted metal. Vladimir Putin is in his hometown of St Petersburg today for talks with the president of Belarus and confirmed 'there are dead and injured', offering his condolences to the families of those killed. The Kremlin leader, who wanted to visit the scene in the aftermath of the attack but was held back by security services, said: 'I have already spoken to the head of our special services, they are working to ascertain the cause of the blasts. 'The causes are not clear, it's too early. We will look at all possible causes, terrorism as well as common crime.' Interfax news agency is citing an unidentified source who says the suspect in Monday's blast might have left the explosive device in a bag. Russian online news outlet Fontanka has published the grainy photo which shows a middle-aged man who entered Petrogradskaya station 20 minutes before the blast. Interfax news agency earlier quoted a source as saying that surveillance cameras had captured photos of the blast suspect. At this stage it is not clear whether or not the suspect was wearing the hat and gown deliberately to help him carry out the attack. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov denied earlier speculation that President Putin was due to pass by the Sennaya Metro station around the time of the blast. The explosion happened between the Sennaya Ploshchad station and Tekhnologichesky Institut at around 2.40pm local time, Russia’s National Anti-Terrorism Committee said. Earlier reports indicated a backpack had been thrown onto the train and witnesses also suggested there had been multiple explosions, but officials confirmed just the one blast. Russian security agencies did find an explosive device at a different metro station in central St Petersburg and made it safe, the National Anti-Terrorist Committee said in a statement. The device was found at the Ploshchad Vosstaniya metro station, a different location from where a blast earlier took place. Other witnesses also described a man leaving a briefcase on one carriage before moving to another just seconds before the huge explosion. As reports of the suspected terror attack trickled through to the capital, Moscow heightened its security and local reports suggest three metro stations - Nagatinskaja, Savelovskaya and Ugrezhskaya (CIP) - were cordoned off due to suspicious packages. A witnesses told Russia's Life News: 'People were bleeding, their hair burned. We were told to move to the exit, because the movement stopped. People just fled. '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.' Eight bodies were recovered from the carriage while two more were found on the platform and the final two killed were found in the tunnel. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/artic...
