Traces of explosives reportedly found at Russian train site

Traces of explosives rep

Russian news agencies are reporting that investigators have found traces of explosives among the wreckage of a train that derailed, killing at least 26 people. The reported discovery appears to buttress initial fears that the deadly derailment on the Moscow-St. Petersburg line Friday night was a terrorist attack caused by a bomb planted on the tracks. The Interfax and RIA Novosti news agencies cite Federal Security Service chief Alexander Borotnikov as saying Saturday that a home-made bomb equivalent to 7 kilograms of TNT had detonated, derailing the express train Friday night. The death toll is still unclear: The Health Ministry says 26 people were killed but prosecutors say at least 30. Dozens of people have been reported injured.
