The death toll in the Minsk metro blast rose to 12 as one of the victims died in hospital early on Tuesday.

The death toll in the Minsk metro blast rose to 12 as one of the victims died in hospital early on Tuesday, the country's security service said in a statement.

The Belarusian KGB also said the most likely perpetrator of the attack has already been identified and photofits of the supects have been released. Belarusian Interior Minister Anatoly Kuleshov said the bomb was probably improvised and radio-controlled.

The blast has been classed as terrorism.

More than 120 people were also injured when a bomb exploded as a train stood at the Oktyabrskaya metro station at 5.55 pm (14:55 GMT) on Monday. The bomb was planted under a bench at the metro's only interchange station, the city's busiest.
