    MOSCOW, February 7 (RIA Novosti corr. Nino Iosebadze) - The terrorist who exploded a metro train car in Moscow had at least two accomplices, Moscow mayor Yuri Luzhkov told a Saturday press conference. He said the explosion happened at the height of approx. 50 centimeters from the car floor.

    "It means that the criminal had a case or a bag with an explosive in hand, and, most likely, blew up the explosive device himself," Luzhkov said.

    In the mayor's opinion, the fact that the terrorist attack had been thoroughly planned speaks for the suggestion that the terrorist had accomplices.

    The mayor believes the law enforcement agencies, the prosecutor's office and medical services of Moscow worked very promptly and in a well organized way.
