A suspected IED explosion occurred on an underground subway train in St. Petersburg, Russia, Monday, just as Russian President Vladimir Putin was conducting a meeting in the city.
The attack at the Sennaya Ploshchad metro station reportedly killed 10 people and injured at least 50.
The explosive device was reportedly filled with shrapnel and is being investigated as a terror attack.
UPDATE 10:30 a.m. ET: Officials found another unexploded bomb at a second subway station, and the Telegraph has published a Twitter post of a photo of a possible suspect who may have left the bomb in a suitcase.
