'Bomb' found in city raid

Konstantin Serov, the chief administrator in the city district where the building is located, told Russian news agencies that police deactivated an explosive device at the apartment. A bomb also was found and disarmed in the apartment shared by the three suspects on the outskirts of St. Petersburg.

St Petersburg is still reeling after a bomb ripped through the city's metro on Monday, killing 14 people and injuring 50.

Police in the city are on high alert following Monday's explosion that killed the attacker and 13 other people and wounded some 55.

After evacuating residents from the residential building, the device was defused.

Authorities said on Wednesday that they had searched Jalilov's residence and said CCTV footage showed him leaving his home ahead of the attack "with a bag and rucksack".

The Investigative Committee said the suspects are residents of the former Soviet Central Asia region like the bomber, 22-year-old Akbarzhon Dzhalilov, a native of Kyrgyzstan.

"Shocked & saddened by news of terror blast in St Petersburg; my deepest condolences to bereaved families, people & government of Russian Federation", he tweeted Tuesday.

People stand around candles showing the time of the subway bombing as they gather in memory of victims of the tragic event, on Marsovo Polye in St. Petersburg, Russia, Wednesday, April 5, 2017.

The suspected bomber was identified as Kyrgyz-born Akbarjon Djalilov, a Russian citizen who was born in 1995.

The investigative committee said the six Central Asian citizens were detained as part of a joint operation by investigators, the Federal Security Service, the Interior Ministry and the National Guard.

Investigators are thought to be checking whether Dzhalilov may have trained with the Islamic State group. The investigators found no immediate evidence of their involvement in the subway attack.

She has been buried Thursday in a funeral attended by a few dozen relatives and friends.

Russian news agencies reported that law enforcement agencies had arrested three people, but did not say if they were men or women.
