Are you in Moscow?

''Two explosions during the Monday morning rush hour killed at least 36 people and brought chaos to the centre of Moscow. ''

I live in Moscow, most people are pretty sad and shocked. The metro is yesterday afternoon was, unbelievably, almost empty, with many people choosing to walk or take buses instead. On my facebook about a quarter of my friends are from Russia but the home page is taken up by people saying how sad they are, there is no space for comments from my friends in England. Reply to this

All of my friends in Moscow are fine. One of them used to work next to Park Kul'tury until he changed jobs last month, so he had a close escape in a very broad sense. The others I spoke to were nowhere near the blasts - but when things like this happen you wonder about certain things: how many people got off the metro trains one station before the bombs went off; how many were ill and so didn't go to work along the red line that day; how many arrived on various platforms just a few seconds too late to step on to one of the carriages?

My close friend was buying her ticket/metro card in the station when the bombs went off. She is still quite shaken and can't sleep. I used to use the same line when I was there about 6 weeks ago so I wonder what would happen if I was still living there? Reply to this
