At least 10 people have been killed in a blast on the underground rail system in St Petersburg, Russia's health minister has said.

Dozens of other people were injured in the explosion which occurred between Sennaya Ploshchad and Technology Institute stations.

Interfax reported that a bomb was left in a briefcase in a metro carriage and the Russian Prosecutors Office said the blast was a terror attack.

Anti-terror officials confirmed that a second device was found and deactivated at the Ploshchad Vosstaniya station, a different location to the earlier blast. (...)
