10 injured in St. Petersburg explosion
    2017-December-29  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

A TOTAL of 10 people were injured Wednesday in an explosion at a supermarket in the Russian city of St. Petersburg, the Russian authorities said.

The Russian National Anti-terrorism Committee said in a press release that its operational headquarters is coordinating the activities of emergency services, security agencies and law enforcement forces, and that measures are being taken to search for those involved in committing this crime.

The incident took place at about 6:45 p.m., when an explosive device placed in a locker went off at a supermarket in a shopping center in the northern part of the city, causing injuries and damaging the shop.

“10 people have been taken to hospitals. The wounded people’s lives are not in danger,” head of the Russian Investigative Committee’s St. Petersburg department, Alexander Klaus, said.

Dozens of people were evacuated from the building after the explosion, and traffic control surrounding the crime scene was temporarily lifted, local media has reported.

According to a preliminary assessment, it was an improvised explosive device stuffed with striking elements equivalent to 200 grams of TNT, a chemical compound usually used as an explosive material, the statement said. (Xinhua)
