By Adam Garrie | The Duran

Vladimir Putin has said it may have been a terrorist attack. The entire St. Petersburg Metro system is now closed.

Two large blasts have been reported at St. Petersburg’s Sennaya Ploschad and Tekhnologichesky Institute metro stations.

At least 10 people have been killed by the blasts and over 50 are reported as injured.

Terrorism is considered to be the likely cause.

Early reports indicate that the blasts came from inside a train car.

Photos have emerged on social media showing the extent of the carnage.

Sputnik reports that, “At lest one of the explosive devices contained destructive agents”.

Shrapnel was expelled during the explosions.

Vladimir Putin said that terrorism is not being ruled out as a cause of the blasts.

Russian President Vladimir Putin was meeting with his Belorussian counterpart Alexander Lukashenko at the time of the explosions.

UPDATE: An exploded bomb has been found at a third St. Petersburg Metro station.
