Passengers in Moscow subway and on suburban trains are being warned about possible acts of terror on ground transport and elsewhere
Passengers in Moscow subway and on suburban trains are being warned about possible acts of terror on ground transport and elsewhere, as authorities called for vigilance. Police have reinforced patrols on suburban trains and at railroad terminals, and intercom warnings on trains are issued regularly. Subway passengers have been urged to be more vigilant and call police or station attendants in case of detecting unattended things. They are also encouraged to use SOS red-blue information terminals installed on all subway stations. "The Moscow subway transports more than seven million people a day; and their safety is priority for us," subway administration officials said, "but regrettably, terrorists have targeted it more than once." On June 11, 1996, four people were killed in an explosion on a train car at the Tulskaya subway station. An explosion in an underground pass of Pushkin Square on August 8, 2000, claimed the lives of 13 people, and injured more than 130. A blast at the hall of the Belarusskaya station, ring line, hurt 20 people, including two children. On February 6, 2004, an explosion ripped through the second car of the train between the stations of Paveletskaya and Avtozavodskaya, killing 42 people and injuring another 250. On August 31, 2006, an explosion near the Rizhskaya subway station killed eight people and injured another 30
