A bomb detonated on the St. Petersburg subway yesterday that has left 10 people dead and 50 injured. Subway cars were mangled. It’s a gruesome attack. This was well-planned and it has symbolic meaning because the terrorist attacked Putin’s hometown while he was there meeting with a dignitary.
The bomb that went off was an IED with shrapnel left in a suitcase.
Unbelievably, a BBC correspondent thought the terror attack was a false flag meant as a distraction from calls to investigate Putin on corruption — because we all know it couldn’t be the obvious — an Islamist terror attack.

The Russians have declared it a terror attack and one suspect looks like an Islamist.

An alleged suspect was filmed going into the subway.

The Russians were reported to be looking for two suspects.
A suspect has been detained. He is a 33-year-old native of the North Caucasus Federal District, and was arrested in the past for hooliganism. He shot a pistol into a moving train.
Days before the tragedy, ISIS released the poster below. The radicals believe their religion requires them to notify the enemy in advance.
