Letter Published in Gulf News UAE on 10 April 17,Stop the violence
The St. Petersburg metro bombing was greatly saddening (“St Petersburg blast suspect named”, Gulf News, April 5). After the recent UK Parliament attack, this incident was really shocking. The number of people killed rose to 14 and 50 civilians were treated for varying degrees of injury. However, the motive behind this attack is yet to be known. Now, apart from airports and public places, railway stations are being targeted by terrorists.
Russia is fighting against terrorism, along with the international community, and this unacceptable attack is a challenging issue for the Russian Federation. In recent reports, terrorists have been mainly targeting Europe. Hence, the international community should not delay in eradicating these threats and ending acts of violence. I pray for the victims and their grieving family members.
