Russia: Ex-student detonates explosive device on monastery grounds

There are supposed to be injured children. It is still unclear whether the suspect was killed. The motif is also puzzled.

Serpuchow / Moscow – A young man detonated a self-made explosive device on Monday on the site of a Russian women’s convent.

The explosion occurred in the morning in the city of Serpukhov in the Moscow region, around 90 kilometers south of the Russian capital. The Central Investigative Committee in Moscow announced that an attempted murder trial had been initiated. The background was initially unclear.

The state-run Russian news agency Tass reported, citing its own sources, of seven injured children among the emergency services. It was therefore unclear whether the suspect, presumably 18 years old, survived the attack. According to investigators, he is a graduate of a high school of the Russian Orthodox Church, which is located next to the women’s monastery.

It is also being investigated whether the young man could have detonated the explosive device out of hatred of the school’s teachers and the nuns. Accordingly, he could have felt harassed during the training.

A large number of police could be seen in pictures of the women’s monastery on Monday morning. In Russia there had been several rampages at educational institutions this year, some with dead and injured. dpa
