White House condemns “reprehensible attack” that killed at least 10

The White House condemned the bombing that killed at least 10 people in a metro tunnel in St. Petersburg, Russia on Monday (April 3).

At White House spokesman Sean Spicer’s daily briefing with reporters, he said the president was briefed on today’s bombing in St. Petersburg and that “the United States condemns this reprehensible attack.”

An explosion that tore through a train car in a subway tunnel is called a probable terrorist attack by authorities, since it coincided with Russian President Vladimir Putin’s visit to the city. The Interfax news agency found that the origin of the blast may have been from an explosive device hidden in a briefcase.

In the daily briefing, Spicer also announced that U.S. President Donald Trump will donate all of his first-quarter salary to the U.S. Park Service.
