Suspected Islamic terrorists kill 14 in St. Petersburg Russia
The man suspected of killing 14 people by bombing a St Petersburg train was a native of Kyrgyzstan who obtained Russian citizenship, the Central Asian country's security service has said.That last quoted sentence seems inconsistent with the last line of the story, "Both attacks were claimed by Islamist groups." It was about previous attacks which were similar to this one. When it comes to mass murder attacks of noncombatants, it is more than likely to have been done by a radical Islamist.
Forty-nine people were injured in the explosion between two underground stations on Monday afternoon.
Kyrgyz officials named the suspect as Akbarzhon Jalilov, an ethnic Uzbek born in Osh in 1995.
There are conflicting reports as to whether he was a suicide bomber.
Kyrgyz state media said the country's security service was "maintaining contact with the Russian secret service for further investigation".
Russian investigators have given few details. No group has said it was responsible.
