A powerful homemade bomb sent a high-speed Moscow-to-St. Petersburg train careening off its tracks killing at least 26 people in what officials consider an act of terrorism. As many as 100 people were left injured by the disaster, officials said, and 18 remained missing. The crash occurred near the border of the Novgorod and Tver provinces, some 250 miles (400 kilometers) northwest of Moscow and 150 miles (250 kilometers) southeast of St. Petersburg. Among the dead were citizens of Belgium, Italy and Azerbaijan, Governor Valentina Matvienko of St. Petersburg told the state-run RIA Novosti news agency. Experts found pieces of an explosive device that and left a five-foot (1.5 meter). The initial blast derailed the last three carriages of the 14-car Nevsky Express. The investigative committee of Russia’s General Prosecutor’s Office said, “Indeed, this was a terrorist attack.”
