    Trains on the Sokolnicheskaya line of the Moscow subway, the site of two deadly suicide bombings on Monday morning, are running as normal, the subway's press service said.

    Two blasts in the Lubyanka and Park Kultury stations at the Sokolnicheskaya subway line occurred during the early morning rush hour with an interval of 40 minutes, the first one at approximately 8:00 a.m. Moscow time (5:00 GMT). According to preliminary information, at least 38 people have died and more than 60 were injured.

    The number of passengers in the Moscow underground significantly declined following the attacks. Despite increased security across the network, the evening rush hour saw the usually overcrowded metro carriages half empty as many people stayed away.

    Psychologists have urged people not to be afraid of using the metro as, they say, the probability of an individual becoming the victim of a terrorist attack is very low.
