There have been two explosions on Moscow’s underground metro system. Both blasts happened during the Monday morning rush hour in what authorities believe could have been a co-ordinated attack, although it’s still not confirmed how the explosions happened. At least 32 were killed and 11 wounded in the first explosion at Lubyanka station just before 8am, Moscow time. The station is near to The Kremlin and is beneath the headquarters of the Federal Security Service. A second explosion occurred 45 minutes later at Park Kultury station in central Moscow, killing at least 12 people and injuring 15 others. Both stations are on the same subway line, which has now been closed in the centre of the city. The police are on high alert across the Russian capital, and are investigating whether suicide bombers could be to blame. A terrorism investigation is underway. Emergency crews are at both blast sites. The wounded are being airlifted by helicopter to hospital, because the surrounding roads have ground to a halt.
