EJC condemns terror attack on St. Petersburg metro

The European Jewish Congress condemns in the strongest terms the barbaric terror attack on the St. Petersburg metro on Monday which has claimed the lives of at least 11 people and left scores injured. 

EJC President Dr. Moshe Kantor said: “Once again, we are sadly witness to the indiscriminate hate and death which lies at the heart of international terror, attacking people as they peacefully go about their daily lives. This terror knows no country and no religion. We are all targets of it and we must all share a collective responsibility to cooperate in the fullest manner to defeat it.”

A bomb explosion tore through a train as it was traveling between two stations in Russia's second-largest city. A second, larger device was found and defused at another station, Russia's Anti-Terrorism Committee said. Alongside the dead, dozens of people were injured in the attack.

“On behalf of all Europe’s Jewish communities, we send our deep condolences to the Russian people and particularly to the families of the victims, and we wish a speedy recovery to all those injured in this cowardly attack,” Dr. Kantor said.
