Russian Federation terror attack: Explosion at college kills 13 and injures 50

The head of a Crimean college said unknown gunmen had burst into the building, let off explosives, and started shooting anyone they saw.

"I don't know", the college director told local media.

13 people have been killed after an explosive device filled with metal fragments went off in a college in Crimea.

The blast at a college in the Crimean peninsula's city of Kerch was an act of terrorism carried out using a home-made bomb, the first deputy head of the National Guard Sergei Melikov said on Wednesday, according to TASS news agency.

Crimea, officially part of Ukraine, was seized by Russian Federation in 2014 and annexed after a disputed vote that was widely condemned by the global community.

Pupils and college staff were among those killed, she said.

Man Booker 2018: Four women, two men shortlisted for the prize
The victor of the 50,000 pound ($66,000) prize will be announced on October 16 during a black-tie dinner at London's Guildhall. And this morning word comes of the Man Booker Short list-a list dominated by women writers.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has ordered his security services to establish the cause of the blast and hunt down those respsonsible. Preliminary figures are 50 injured and 10 dead.

Around 50 people, the majority of them teenagers, are believed to have been injured.

Emergency officials said earlier that the blast had been caused by a gas canister explosion.

Emergency services and ambulance cars are working at the scene of the accident.

Explosions in former Soviet republics are often caused by household cooking or heating gas, but Russian Federation has also been hit by many terrorist bombings since the separatist wars in Chechnya in the 1990s and early 2000s.

Kerch is the site of the western end of a newly built bridge linking Russian Federation to Crimea, which it took over by force after Moscow-friendly Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych was pushed from power by pro-European protests in Kyiv. Russian officials called it a possible terrorist attack.
