Russian Leaders: Moscow Metro

Russian leaders have threatened that the masterminds behind the Moscow Metro bombings which killed 38 people “will be destroyed.”

The attacks occurred this morning during the rush hour and also injured more than 60 people.

No one has taken responsibility for the attacks but security forces are placing the blame on rebels from the North Caucasus.

US President Barack Obama personally conveyed his condolences to Russian President Dmitri Medvedev and offered co-operation with Russia in order to bring those responsible for the attacks to justice.

Foreign ministers from the G8 continued their talks in Canada and condemned the attacks.

Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin promised to eradicate the terrorists responsible for the attacks adding, “Terrorists will be destroyed.”

These attacks are the deadliest since February 2004 in which 40 people were killed on a metro train headed towards the Paveletskaya station.
