The agency, quoting unnamed sources, said surveillance cameras had captured images of what it called the organizers of the explosion, which hit St Petersburg as President Vladimir Putin was visiting the city.

It'd be hard for the people placing the devices to be able to do so without being seen and recorded. I doubt that the perpetrators will go undetected. I also rather doubt that they will be killed rather than captured - unless they choose suicide, either before capture or at the point of capture.

Right. Here is the picture of the suspect: http://piter.tv/event/Foto_cheloveka_kotorogo_ugolovnij_rozisk_ischet_v_svyazi_so_vzrivom/

According to the last link in the same article (latest news) there are 10 victims and about 50 injured :(

And how many times does it have to be , before it counts as a group-thing and not just people being  :censored: s?

I don't really care about the group-name, but if X% of the group misbehaves perpetually, does it count as a group-thing?

And what if X% causes severe disruption in society? When does that count as a group thing?

And what if X% causes death in society? When does that count as a group thing?

Etc.

My X has long since passed, this is a structural problem and no longer a 'loner' thing.

In a way Ste is correct in as much that the cünts are not following a religion or faith, but rather a political manifestation or objective. That they cloak there actions in religion is there own misguided intent.

The problem is that one particular runt religion promotes and perpetrates these actions, continually.

The simple solution is to ban followers of said runt religion from participation in the Western world.

The only "bright side" in this tragedy is that people of St. Petersburg have once again proved their city is true "Hero" («Город-герой»). In the runet there are numerous posts about people helping each other, expensive cars stopping to give a free lift to those in need, cabs giving lifts for free, people who live nearby offering overnight to those who are stuck in the area and so on.

100% agree.

The X% is a minuscule number in the big scheme of things. Muslims that I know are every bit as disgusted by such actions and even more so, because they know that people will try to hold them personally responsible for a stranger's heinous acts, which they themselves find utterly appalling.

Every time a Catholic / whatever terrorist act occurs, (or child porn in Catholic cases ), there is always a pope speaking up and being horrified.

I quite miss that, with the muslim faith.

From RT:
The Russian Investigative Committee has identified 22-year-old Akbarzhon Dzhalilov, a Kyrgyz-born Russian citizen, as the suspect believed to have carried out the terrorist bombing in the Saint Petersburg Metro.
