Photos of metro car that exploded in Petersburg published

The attack killed 16 people, including the suicide bomber.

The Rosbalt news agency published photos of the carriage #8147 from the St. Petersburg metro, where on April 3, 2017, a terrorist attack killed 16 people, including Akbarjon Jalilov, a Kyrgyz-born suicide bomber. The car is located at one of the depots as material evidence in the criminal case of the terrorist attack.


The photos show the consequences of an explosion and the doors lined with metal plates. Parts of the seats either were destroyed by an explosion or were removed after the tragedy. A sneaker lays on the place where Jalilov was found.


The explosion occurred when the train was traveling between the stations Tekhnologichesky Institut and Sennaya Ploschad. 67 people were injured. Al-Qaeda, whose activities are banned in the Russian Federation, took responsibility for the attack. According to investigators, Jalilov received money for the terrorist attack from an intermediary to whom the terrorists transferred the payment in Turkey.
