St Petersburg: Explosion in Russian supermarket injures at least 10; no clue on motive

Major explosion in Russia's St Petersburg; 10 reported injured

People gather outside a supermarket after an explosion in St Petersburg, Russia December 27, 2017.

Four people were hospitalized after a blast inside a store in the Russian city of St. Petersburg, state-run news outlet Tass reported Wednesday.

The blast was caused by a "homemade explosive device with the power equivalent to 200 grams of TNT filled with lethal fragments", she said. Over a dozen people were murdered in the terrorist attack.

The shrapnel that was part of the explosive device proved the explosion "was a terror attack anyway".

Earlier this month, Russian President Vladimir Putin telephoned US President Donald Trump to thank him for a Central Intelligence Agency tip that helped thwart a series of bombings in St Petersburg - Mr Putin's home town.

Storage boxes at all Perekrestok supermarkets in St. Petersburg were removed following the attack.

Earlier this month, Putin telephoned President Donald Trump to thank him for what the Kremlin described as a Central Intelligence Agency tip that prevented more bombings in St. Petersburg, Putin's hometown.

Earlier this month, security forces arrested seven suspected members of an Islamic State (IS) sleeper cell in St. Petersburg who were reportedly preparing a suicide bombing at the city's Kazansky Cathedral.

"Don't take any prisoners, liquidate the bandits on the spot", Putin told the 600 servicemen and women who gathered at the Kremlin.

"What would have happened if those hundreds, thousands. had come back to us, trained, armed and well-prepared?"
