Moscow mourns 2010 metro bombing victims

Muscovites are bringing flowers to the Park Kultury and Lubyanka subway stations, where 40 people were killed in suicide bombing attacks three years ago.

Tables decorated with red fabric were placed at the stations, an Interfax correspondent has reported. Roses, tulips and carnations brought by passengers, as well as candles, pages with verses and photographs of people killed in the 2010 terrorist acts can be seen on these tables.

Representatives of public organizations paid their respects to the suicide bombing victims as well.

Several policemen are present at the stations.

Two suicide bombers blew themselves up at the Lubyanka and Park Kultury subway stations during the early morning rush hour on March 29, 2010, killing almost 40 people and injuring another 160.

Meanwhile, the Russian Investigative Committee is still determining suspects in the bombings of two Moscow metro stations in 2010, spokesperson of the Investigative Committee, Vladimir Markin, said.

"Investigative, operative and detection activities are currently being continued to determine other people involved in carrying out these terrorist attacks," Markin told Interfax on Friday.

The Investigative Committee is probing the criminal case opened under Russian Criminal Code Article 205, a terrorist attack, following the explosions carried out by two female bombers.
