Russia Under Threat Again, Deadly Terrorist Attack Kills 11 People As Perpetrators Flee

Civilans are the target.

At least 11 people were killed and 51 others were injured in a bomb blast which occurred on St Petersburg metro on April 3, 2017. The explosion tore through a train that was traveling in Russia's second-largest city. Soon after the attack, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev described the attack as a “terrorist act.” The perpetrators of the terrorist attack fled after the act. 

The terrorist attack has raised key questions. First, who is behind the terrorist attack? Second, is Russia’s role in Syria endangering the country? Third, is there a Chechen separatist angle to the terrorist attacks?
