    A man threatened to "blow everyone up" in a bank in St. Petersburg on Monday because he was dissatisfied with the high commission rates for a money transfer, according to a St. Petersburg police statement on Tuesday.

    "He said that he had four kilograms of TNT on him and would blow everyone up. He then called the police from his cell phone to report his intentions and left the bank," the police statement said.

    Police authorities detained a man from Kyrgyzstan who resembled a description given by the bank's employees. Later it was determined he had called the police from his cell phone.

    A criminal case has been launched against the disgruntled client who could face up to three years behind bars if found guilty.
