  • A police officer cordons off the site of a blast in a supermarket in Saint Petersburg on Dec. 27 2017

She said the incident has been classed as attempted murder, without mentioning terrorism as a possible cause.

At least 13 people were injured Wednesday evening after an improvised explosive device went off at a storage area for customers' bags at the supermarket in St. Petersburg.

The Egyptian foreign ministry's statement renewed Egypt's call for the need to unite worldwide efforts to fight terrorism and its funding resources. He went on to note that another attack was thwarted recently, a reference to an alleged series of bombings in St. Petersburg that a Central Intelligence Agency tip helped prevent, according to the Kremlin.

A huge explosion, equivalent of 200g of TNT, ripped through the Perekrestok market in northwest St Petersburg on Wednesday (27 December).
