Images and videos posted on social media showed a train carriage with its doors blown out and damage inside. All metro stations in St Petersburg have been closed, Interfax reported, citing metro staff. The blast happened as Russian President Vladimir Putin was meeting with Belarussian leader Alexander Lukashenko in the city. President Vladimir Putin said he could not rule out the blast being a terrorist attack and expressed his condolences to the families of the victims and those injured.
