Two female suicide bombers blew themselves up on the Moscow subway during the morning rush hour today, killing at least 37 people and injuring more than 60, Russian officials said.
Yuri Luzhkov, the mayor of Moscow, told reporters the suicide bombers were believed to have set off their explosives as trains approached Lubyanka and Park Kultury metro stations.
"The first data that the FSB [Federal Security Service] has given us is that there were two female suicide bombers," he told reporters at Park Kultury.
Vladimir Putin, the prime minister, who was on a visit to the Siberian city of Krasnoyarsk, said those responsible for the attacks would be "destroyed".
