The authorities have found and disarmed a second explosive device before it could cause any more harm. Apparently, the second IED was positioned to cause a lot more damage than the first.
Getting this second explosive device intact is expected to give forensics experts a lot of information about the perpetrators.
Also, the count of injured people has risen to 37.
RT has a livestream, Putin is on ator.
Note that this just happened. There could well be more bombs going off at any moment.

I’m not sure what I’m even supposed to say when these things happen.
They just happen so often, and it is always the same thing.
The difference here is that Putin will do something about it.
A suspected IED explosion inside a car of the St. Petersburg Metro system has resulted in casualties among passengers, according to the transit system’s management. An evacuation is underway and some stations have been closed for entry.
Preliminary reports indicate that some 10 people may have been killed and 20 injured in the blast, news agencies said citing sources close to the investigation.
The incident reportedly happened at the Sennaya station of the northwestern Russian city’s underground transit system.
The local rescue services told TASS they were responding to the report of the smoke, but could not provide any detail.
At least eight stations of the metro have been closed for passengers.
Some of the images show several bodies lying next to the damaged car, with blood apparently spilt on a bench.
RIA Novosti said evacuation of people from the affected area was underway.
The metro management said they received reports of an explosion inside the car, possibly of an improvised explosive device.
Photos taken near the Sennaya Ploshchad station entry showed firefighter vehicles involved in responding to the emergency.
Moslems should be exterminated.

The death toll will probably go up.
Other sites are reporting double blasts. Probably, RT is going to be more accurate than most English language websites.
We’ll keep you updated.
