An investigation into suspected terrorism was opened in Russia on Wednesday, October 31, after a bomb - carried by a teenager - exploded inside a building belonging to the Russian Federal Security Service (FSB) in Arkhangelsk earlier in the morning (local time). Further details are still emerging; however, the bomber was allegedly an "anarchist-communist" who targeted the FSB for its alleged unethical and illegal practices (e.g. falsifying documents, torture, etc.).
An increased security presence has been deployed at the FSB office and other public buildings throughout the city. Localized traffic disruptions are to be expected near the site of the explosion over the coming hours.
The bomb exploded on the morning of October 31 and left three FSB employees wounded. Only the bomber was killed.
Individuals in Arkhangelsk are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid the vicinity of the explosion, and follow any instructions issued by local authorities.
