The deadly blasts in the Moscow subway could have been organized with support from abroad, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said.
Twin blasts at the Lubyanka and Park Kultury stations at the Sokolnicheskaya subway line occurred during the morning rush hour, the first at 7:52 a.m. Moscow time (03:52 GMT) and the second about 40 minutes later. At least 38 people have died and more than 70 were injured.
"I do not rule this out, nothing can be ruled out here," he said.
The top Russian diplomat said that Moscow "is well informed about the so-called no-man's land on the border between Pakistan and Afghanistan," where "the terrorist underground has entrenched itself."
"We know that many terrorist attacks — not only in Afghanistan, but in other countries too — are plotted in that area... Sometimes, the trail leads to the Caucasus," he said.
He urged the global community to coordinate efforts in the fight against international terrorism and its financial sponsors.
