Tass News: The first blast happened at the city's central Lubyanka station. A second explosion happened at the Park Kultury station.

Two (2) blasts at two (2) different stations in this news report. Let's see if that changes and all of a sudden there is only one (1) blast and the cause of the blast is heavily 'modified'.

Multiple blasts at rush hour...terror sounds like a good bet. Maybe this is some common ground the world can come together on...these vermin need to be dead.

“41 DEAD IN MOSCOW SUBWAY DOUBLE BLAST - TERRORISM PROBE BEGUN
28 March 2010”

SNIPPET: “At least 41 people have been killed and scores more injured as two explosions ripped through the Moscow metro at the height of rush hour this morning.

The first blast at the Lubyanka station in central Moscow happened at 0756 (0356 GMT) as thousands of passengers were packed onto trains.

The headquarters of Russia’s Federal Security Service (FSB), successor to the Soviet-era KGB, is located just above the station.

“The blast hit the second carriage of a metro train that stopped at Lubyanka,” Russian emergencies ministry spokeswoman Irina Andrianova said.

Russian prosecutors said they had launched a “terrorism probe” after the two blasts.”

Prayers up for the victims and their families, very little sympathy for their leaders, who have been playing with fire in Iran and elsewhere. This isn’t the Cold War anymore, fellows, and if you dance with the devil you’ll find you won’t be calling the tune.

“Tokyo marks 15th anniversary of subway gas attack”

By TOMOKO A. HOSAKA
The Associated Press
Saturday, March 20, 2010; 6:22 AM

SNIPPET: “TOKYO — Tokyo subway workers observed a moment of silence Saturday to mark the 15th anniversary of a nerve gas attack by a religious cult, Japan’s deadliest act of domestic terrorism.

About 20 employees at Kasumigaseki station in Tokyo’s government district bowed their heads in silent prayer at 8 a.m., when members of the cult released sarin nerve gas in rush-hour trains on March 20, 1995. The five coordinated attacks killed 13 people and sickened 6,300 others.”

SNIPPET: “Prosecutors in the capital told the Russian Interfax news agency that initial reports indicated both of the explosions were suicide bombings.”

SNIPPET: “There was a major attack on the Moscow Metro in February 2004, when at least 39 people were killed by a bomb on a packed train as it approached the Paveletskaya Metro station.

Six months later, a suicide bomber blew herself up outside a station, killing 10 people. Both attacks were blamed on Chechen rebels, who had targeted the capital in the past.”

“Rebel Ideologist Killed After Filming Last Sermon”
09 March 2010
By Nabi Abdullaev

Xronika.az
Said Buryatsky

SNIPPET: “A Muslim convert accused of organizing the deadly Nevsky Express train bombing in November and a series of other attacks was killed by special forces in Ingushetia shortly after he recorded a farewell online sermon, officials said.

Islamic insurgents confirmed the death of Said Buryatsky, 28, on their web sites Monday and posted a photograph of the bearded Buryatsky’s blood-splattered face. The rebels said Buryatsky became a “martyr” on March 2.

Buryatsky, chief ideologist of the North Caucasus rebels, and seven other rebels were killed in an operation led by the Federal Security Service in the Ingush village of Ekazhevo, the Investigative Committee said. Ten suspects were also detained.”

“Women sucide bombers kill dozens in Moscow Metro attacks”

SNIPPET: “The blasts were caused by suicide bombers wearing belts packed with explosives”
Times Online
6 COMMENTS
RECOMMEND? (18)

SNIPPET: “The blasts were caused by two women wearing belts packed with explosives, Moscow’s chief prosecutor Yuri Syomin told reporters.

Surveillance camera footage posted on the Interbet showed motionless bodies lying in Lubyanka station lobby and emergency workers treating victims.

Passengers, many of them in tears, streamed out of the station, one man exclaiming over and over “This is how we live!”

No group immediately took responsibility for the blasts, but suspicion is likely to fall on Chechen militants and other groups from Russia’s North Caucasus, where Russia is fighting a growing Islamist insurgency.”
