    Reports of a bomb planted at Moscow's Kievsky train station were false, a police source told RIA Novosti on Saturday.

     Reports of a bomb planted at Moscow's Kievsky train station were false, a police source told RIA Novosti on Saturday.

    An unidentified person had earlier called police and said an explosive device had been planted at the station.

    "Police with dogs searched Kievsky train station but did not find an explosive device," the source said.

    People are now being let back into the building.

    The scare came the day after a bomb caused a Moscow-St. Petersburg train to derail, killing at least 26 people. Prosecutors have opened a criminal case on charges of terrorism.

    The blast has raised fears of a resurge in terrorist attacks in the Russian capital and other major cities. Russia was hit hard by terrorism in the 1990s and the early years of this decade, but there had not been a major incident outside the volatile North Caucasus region since 2004.
