‘The investigators identified the man who set the bomb in the wagon car in the subway of Saint Petersburg. He was Akbarzhon Dzhalilov, born on April 1, 1995. Experts found some of his genetic material on the bag that he left at the ‘Uprising Square’ metro station, with the explosive device inside it,’ the authority’s press service reported.
