Russian officials are investigating an explosion that derailed a passenger train on the popular route between Moscow and St Petersburg on Monday (local time), injuring at least 60 people.
Local railway officials say they believe the blast was caused by a homemade bomb.
The overnight express train was on its way to St Petersburg with more than 200 people on board, when it was derailed by an explosion 500 kilometres north of Moscow, shattering glass and injuring dozens.
Prosecutors have opened a criminal investigation into the incident, which points to a terrorist attack and backs up Russian railways officials who say the most likely cause of the explosion was a bomb.
One Russian prosecutor says the blast was the equivalent of two kilograms of TNT explosive.
