Injured in St. Petersburg Supermarket Blast

Injured in St. Petersburg Supermarket Blast

"According to preliminary information, an explosion of an unidentified object occurred in a store", Investigative Committee spokesperson Svetlana Petrenko said in a statement.

Russian news agencies have quoted St. Petersburg's branch of the Emergencies Ministry, saying that a device containing 200 grams of explosives went off today at the storage area for customers' bags.

The device was inside a locker at a chain supermarket called Perekrestok, located in an entertainment complex.

Health officials said none of the 10 victims suffered life-threatening injuries.

In July, the FSB said it had detained seven people who were preparing "acts of terror" in Saint Petersburg, particularly its railway system and major public gathering places.

"All possible versions of what has happened are being worked on", Alexander Klaus, the head of St Petersburg's investigative committee, told Reuters. "As a result, several people have been injured", the Saint Petersburg police said, giving the incident's location.

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

And this month Russian security services said they had dismantled an Islamic State group cell apparently preparing attacks in the city.

Russia's second city Saint Petersburg was the target of a metro bombing in April, which lead to fourteen deaths and dozens of people wounded. Russian authorities identified the bomber who blew himself up on a subway line as Akbardzhon Dzhalilov, a 22-year old Kyrgyz-born Russian national.
