Moscow Blast

Moscow Times reporter Natalya Yefimova reports that an explosion ripped through a crowded underground walkway in central Moscow today, killing at least seven people and wounding dozens more. Police said the blast was apparently caused by a bomb planted in the passageway beneath Pushkin Square. There was no immediate claim of responsibility, although the mayor of Moscow was quick to suggest Chechen rebels might be to blame.
