This morning in Rostov, there was an explosion as a man up what looks to be a small flashlight, but is actually an explosive device –
The man (who was originally reported as being a school janitor, subsequently retracted), is reported as having his fingers blown off by the blast, which took place near a school, in the city in south of Russia.
The explosion took place at between 6.30-7am, Moscow time, with the man later identified as homeless, picking up a package to examine its contents, the flashlight detonating when he tried to switch it on.
Who planted it, or why, is currently unknown, and police are working on it.
I will be tweeting more about this, follow me here for updates.
