Amnesty International unreservedly condemns today's bomb attacks on Moscow's subway system which killed at least 37 people and left dozens injured.On the morning of 29 March, two bombs exploded within an hour of each other at two central Moscow subway stations during the height of the city's rush hour.
It was reported that the attacks were carried out by suicide bombers. No group has as yet claimed responsibility for the blasts.
"There can be no justification for such vicious attacks on the lives of civilians and those who are responsible for it should be apprehended and brought to justice strictly in line with international human rights standards," said Halya Gowan, Director of Amnesty International's Europe and Central Asia Programme.
"The Russian authorities must also ensure human rights are respected in their response to the attack."
