Minsk Bomb Attack

GRAPHIC: The blast which tore through a rush-hour Minsk metro station on Monday was a terrorist attack, prosecutors said. At least 11 people were killed and scores injured when a bomb exploded as a train stood at the Oktyabrskaya metro station at 5.55 pm (14:55 GMT). The station is near the offices of President Alexander Lukashenko, who arrived at the scene shortly afterwards. At a meeting with officials, Lukashenko called the blast “a serious challenge” to the nation.
