Russian investigators open terrorism case after metro blast

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia's state investigative committee said on Monday it had opened a criminal case over the St Petersburg metro blast on charges of a terrorist act.

The agency, which has sweeping powers, said it had sent a group of investigators to St Petersburg to look into the incident which killed at least nine people.

It said however that while it had opened a case under charges of terrorism, it would consider all other possible causes of the incident.
