8 arrested in Russia subway bombing
MOSCOW — Eight members of extremist cells have been arrested in connection with last week’s deadly bombing on a subway in St. Petersburg, Russia’s intelligence chief said Tuesday.
The suicide bombing in Russia’s second-largest city killed 13 passengers and injured dozens of others.
Akbardzhon Dzhalilov, a 22-year old Kyrgyz-born Russian, has been identified as the bomber. Russian authorities have not outlined his possible links to extremist groups but a law enforcement official told the Tass news agency that investigators were checking information that he may have trained with the Islamic State group in Syria.
