Another witness said that the windows on both levels of the station have been shattered and that “the police have cordoned off the area, nobody’s allowed on the premises. There’s a very heavy police presence, emergency ministry officials, bomb squads… it’s understandable that people are afraid, but there aren’t any screams or panicking.”

According to one of the accounts shared tweeter, people around the station thought a plane had crashed, because of the thick fog.

“The blast was really strong so my mother and everybody around thought there was a plane crash,” a woman said. “Somebody shouted: there is an explosion inside the railway station. My mother said there was a lot of smoke.”

    Another day, another horrendous radical Islamic terrorist attack with many killed and dozens injured. This latest atrocity was in Russia. But radical Islamic terrorists are waging wars of aggression in many places around the globe. Their goal is world domination and the elimination of every religion other than their perverted version of Islam. They will kill every man, woman and child they can get their blood-thirsty hands on. They will murder every Christian, Buddhist, Hindu, Jew, Atheist and even moderate or different sect Moslem they can, in order to frighten the rest of the population into submission. The good people and the decent nations must work together to defeat radical Islam or civilization is in peril.
