Baku, December 30, AZERTAC

The Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) group claimed responsibility on Friday (Dec 29) for the bomb attack days earlier that tore through a Saint Petersburg supermarket and wounded 14 people, according to AFP.

“The attack that targeted a shopping centre in Saint Petersburg the day before yesterday (Wednesday) was carried out by an Islamic State-linked group,” ISIS said in a statement via its propaganda agency Amaq.

On Wednesday evening, a home-made bomb placed in a locker at the supermarket in northwestern Saint Petersburg, Russia’s second city and President Vladimir Putin’s home town, went off sowing panic among customers and wounding 14 people including a pregnant woman.

FSB chief Alexander Bortnikov has said Russia remains on alert for a possible return of militants from Syria ahead of the World Cup and the March presidential polls.
