Czech Foreign Ministry: no indication Czechs among injured in St. Petersburg blast

The Czech Foreign Ministry says it has no information to suggest that Czech nationals may have been among those killed or injured in an explosion on a metro train in St. Petersburg on Monday afternoon. At least 10 people were reported killed and dozens injured after an explosive device was detonated on a metro train in the centre of Russia’s second biggest city. The whole of the city’s metro system was closed in the aftermath of the blast and a number of streets at ground level were also cordoned off. It is not clear if the attack was criminal or terrorist. The Czech Foreign ministry has urged Czechs in St. Petersburg to contact their relatives at home.
