    Default St Petersburg: Explosion in Russian supermarket injures at least 10; no clue on motive

    Putin calling it terrorism today.

    At least 10 people have been injured by an explosion at a supermarket in St Petersburg, Russia's second-largest city and the site of a deadly subway bombing earlier this year.

    Investigators are stopping short of calling it a terrorist attack, but say all angles are being considered.

    The device, containing 200 grams of explosives went off at a storage area for customers' bags, Russia's Investigative Committee said.

    It said the device was rigged with shrapnel to cause more damage.

    Russia's National Anti-Terrorism Committee said it was coordinating the search for suspects, and a criminal investigation had been launched.

    No-one has claimed responsibility for the explosion, which occurred at a branch of the Perekrestok supermarket chain in the city's north-west Kalininsky district.

    The 10 injured people were taken to hospital where they were listed as being in a "satisfactory" condition. One was later released.

    Local woman Viktoria Gordeyeva, who walked past the supermarket shortly after the explosion, said people were afraid to enter other stores in the area.

    "There was no panic, but people were reluctant to enter a nearby drug store and a grocery store," she said.

    Please appreciate my sarcasm but; how nice that they got to weigh it before it said bang.

    Sarcasm mode off,

    Sounds like a reasonable reaction to such an event.

    The amount of the explosive used can be estimated based on the size of the explosion.

    In america they know because the FBI gave it to them . In russia they are probably guessing by what type was used and the size of the aftermath .
