MINSK - Police in Belarus carried out spot checks on roads and at stations and airports on Tuesday after a bomb blast tore through a crowded metro station in the capital Minsk, killing at least 12 people.

As police hunted those responsible for planting and detonating the bomb on Monday evening by remote control, a top official from the prosecutor general's office described the attack as an act of terrorism, unprecedented in Belarus.

The KGB state security service issued the description of a heavily-built man of medium height in his 20s, who it said was a suspect in the attack. Three other people had been detained for questioning but were not suspects, the KGB chief said.
