Explosion in Minsk Kills 7

At least seven people have been killed by an explosion in the metro system in the Belarussian capital Minsk, the state news agency Belta said.

It said 35 people were injured in the blast just before 1800 local time (1500 GMT). The cause is not yet known.

An eyewitness reported smoke rising from the Oktyabrskaya metro station in the city centre, and casualties being taken to the surface on stretchers.

The station is near the offices of President Alexander Lukashenko.

"According to the initial information, five people were killed in the metro explosion," said a police source quoted by the official Interfax news agency.

Interfax also quoted a security source as saying the most probable cause of the explosion was an act of terror.

An Associated Press (AP) reporter at the scene saw heavily wounded people being carried out of the station.

Witnesses told AP that the blast erupted as passengers were stepping off a train at Oktyabrskaya station, where two underground railway lines intersect.

One said at least part of the station's ceiling had collapsed after the explosion.

An eyewitness, Maskim Lew, told Ekho Moskvy radio: "There are a lot of special forces troops, a lot of ambulances and firemen.

"Some people are being treated on the spot, some are being taken away, some - those who are conscious and in a more or less normal state - are being helped into ambulances."

The metro was all cordoned off, he said.

Exits from the station lead both to Mr Lukashenko's main office and his residence, as well as the country's powerful security council.

Mr Lukashenko, who has ruled Belarus since 1994, claimed victory in a presidential election last December, but international observers condemned the vote.

Immediately afterwards, dozens of opposition figures - activists and presidential campaigners - were rounded up and arrested. Some are still in jail.

Tensions are rising in the former Soviet republic, says the BBC's David Stern in Kiev. As well as the political tensions, Belarus has also suffered economic difficulties since the beginning of the year.

In July 2008, about 50 people were injured by a bomb blast at an independence day concert attended by Mr Lukashenko.

Belarus, the forgotten part of Europe.

Last dictatorship too, and no one gives a shit. There's not even enough radiation to make the place interesting.
