    MOSCOW, February 6, 2004, /RIA-NOVOSTI CORRESPONDENT/ --A subway-train car exploded at 8.45 a.m. here today, with the authorities attributing this blast to a terrorist act. This was disclosed to RIA-NOVOSTI by Sergei Ignatchenko, chief of the Federal Security Service's public-relations department.

    President Vladimir Putin of the Russian Federation was promptly informed about the tragedy, reports the presidential press service.

    Passengers, who suffered as a result of the blast, are now being evacuated from Paveletskaya station.
