All sixty-one people on board a flydubai Boeing 737 were killed when their plane crashed and burst into flames as it was landing in Rostov-on-Don in South

In another attack in January, two teenagers stabbed children and their teacher with knives, wounding 15 people, and then attempted to kill each other before being detained.

An attack that killed at least 18 at a Crimean trade school Wednesday was the work of a student, not terrorism as earlier suspected, officials said.

At least 17 teenagers have been killed by an 18-year-old gunman who apparently later killed himself in a school in Russian-annexed Crimea.

The bomb was reportedly planted by Vladislav Roslyakov, a local young man who studied at this college, Russian media wrote.

An "unidentified explosive device" detonated at the college in Kerch in eastern Crimea.

The top Russian official for Crimea says the attacker at a Crimean vocational college was a student at the school who has killed himself.


Law enforcement officials said they were treating the incident as a terror attack.

Sergey Aksyonov, the head of the Crimean government, said the suspected perpetrator of the attack had taken his own life, according to remarks carried on Russian state television.

The blast was caused by a bomb packed with metal objects and was set off in the cafeteria, investigators said. Grebennikova, who said she had left the grounds shortly before the attack occurred, said students and staff were among victims.

"Started running and throwing explosive devices, bombing everywhere", Grebennikova said at a scene on October 17.

Putin also pledged to brief the general public on the progress of probe into the attack.

Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov said Wednesday that the possibility that this was a terror attack "is being considered". "I would have been dead now", she said.


Witnesses said that the attacker fired shots but also spoke of hearing an explosion.

Putin deplored the attack as a "tragic event" and offered condolences to the victims' families at a news conference in Sochi, where he had talks with Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi.

"There are already lots of people in the emergency room, and in the operating theatre", the TASS news agency quoted the employee as saying.

Reuters news agency said the schools and pre-schools were being evacuated in the city after the blast.

Russian Federation annexed the Black Sea peninsula of Crimea from Ukraine four years ago, prompting worldwide condemnation and Western sanctions.

Russian Federation has annexed Crimea from Ukraine in 2014, a move that triggered Western sanctions.
