    A bomb threat led to the closure of a metro station in Saint Petersburg.

    ST. PETERSBURG (Sputnik) — The Sennaya Ploshchad subway station was closed following a bomb threat a day after a deadly blast killed 14 people on a stretch from Sennaya to Tekhnologichesky Institut, the St. Petersburg Metro System said on Tuesday.

    "At 11:21 a.m. [08:21 GMT] the station 'Sennaya Ploshchad' is closed to passenger entrance and exit for inspection due to an anonymous call about a bomb threat," the metro said.

    Trains are passing the station without stopping.
