Faces of the Pushkin Square Blast

Moscow's evening rush hour turned deadly Tuesday when a bomb exploded in a crowded underground passageway at the city's center. The Pushkin Square blast, which killed seven and injured 53, came less than a year after a series of gruesome explosions in Moscow, Buinaksk and Volgodonsk that killed some 300 people and left the whole country on edge.

Tuesday's 6 p.m. blast left the city's busiest neighborhood in a panicked frenzy, with smoke pouring out of the passageway, bleeding victims lying on the sidewalk and paramedics working at top speed.

On Wednesday, with the smoke cleared, the process mourning began in hospitals, beneath Pushkin Square and throughout the city.
