According to a Report by the Daily Mail, a bomb loaded with nails and other shrapnel was detonated on a train in St. Petersburg, Russia on Monday, April 3, 2017. Reports indicate the explosion killed at least 10 people and injured dozens more- including children. There was also a second explosive found in a nearby station. It was successfully defused before causing any damage.

Suspects may be affiliated with ISIS

The men who are believed to be the primary suspects in the attack were recorded on Russian CCTV, and a manhunt for the two of them is underway.

A description of one of the men indicates he was wearing what appeared to be a long black top with some sort of head covering. He also sported a long beard. While no known terrorist organization has taken credit for the catastrophe as of yet, the Daily Mail reports that past Russian attacks have been blamed primarily on ISIS, although the Chechens have also been involved to some extent.

Emergency personnel engulfed the scene in a matter of minutes

The train, which was traveling between popular metro stations Sennaya Ploshchad and Sadovaya, sat in pieces as both bystanders and emergency personnel rushed to help the injured persons.

The Daily Mail reports that an eyewitness by the name of Leonid Chaika described the scene as "a lot of smoke, a crowd making its way to the elevators, people with blood and other people's insides on their clothes, bloody faces."

Vladimir Putin, the Russian leader notorious for playing a part in the recent American presidential election, offered sympathy to the families of those that were killed in a statement earlier today.

The bomb recovered is very common in terror organizations

Bombs loaded with shrapnel are common derivatives of terrorist organizations, as they are not very expensive to make and do immense damage. In fact, they are so common, there are several sources on the web that teach the steps required to make them.

In a statement today, President Donald Trump described the attack as "absolutely terrible."

Russian forces are on high alert as they work to track down the alleged culprits, but in a city of almost 5 million, that may be easier said than done.
