Nineteen people were killed Tuesday and up to 120 injured when a Moscow underground train derailed between two stations during morning rush hour, the country’s Emergencies Ministry said.
Russia's investigative committee said it was looking into the causes of the accident. It said, however, there was no suspicion of that it was a militant attack, the cause of scores of deaths in Moscow's underground in years past.
Injured passengers were carried on stretchers, bloodied and bandaged, out of metro stations and helicopters flew the most seriously hurt to hospitals. Passengers looked stunned or were crying after being helped to the surface by emergency services.
"There is no one alive left," Moscow's deputy mayor Peter Biryukov said. "The cause is not known, the work continues."
