St Petersburg supermarket blast claimed by IS

St Petersburg supermarket blast claimed by IS

It did say the suspect organised and carried out the attack on his own.

The blast occurred in the supermarket on Wednesday.

The home-made bomb had been placed in a locker at the supermarket in northwestern St Petersburg, Russia's second city and President Vladimir Putin's hometown.

The Islamic terrorists claim they were behind the blast that rocked the Perekrestok market in northwest St Petersburg on Wednesday (27 December).

Russia's intervention in the Syrian war on the side of the government is believed to have made it a key target for IS and other militant groups.

Sushil, on the other hand, claimed that he was bitten by Rana during the bout. "All this is a part of sports", Sushil claimed. The proceedings ended on a stormy note when supporters of both the wrestlers came to blows.

The bombing came after the FSB security service said earlier this month it had prevented a terror attack on a key Orthodox cathedral in St Petersburg with the help of America's Central Intelligence Agency, which led Putin to thank US President Donald Trump.

The suspected bomber of a supermarket in St Petersburg has been detained, Russian media reported on Saturday, citing the country's secret service. The explosive device, which had an estimated power of 200 grams of TNT, was filled with additional lethal fragments.

Head of the FSB security service, Alexander Bortnikov, said the nation was alert to the possibility of jihadist fighters returning from Syria ahead of the tournament.

The terrorists have claimed responsibility for numerous attacks without providing evidence as they come under strain in the Middle East, where they have lost the majority of the territory they once controlled.

In April, an apparent suicide bombing on an underground train in St Petersburg killed more than a dozen people.
