Three detained over McDonald’s blast in St. Petersburg

The recent blast at a McDonald’s fast-food restaurant in St. Petersburg is an act of terrorism, according to Russian prosecutors. Three out of five alleged bombers have already been detained. All three plead guilty.


Last month's blast on the Russian city's main street, Nevsky Prospekt, injured six people and blew out the windows.

Police say a neo-Nazi gang is suspected of carrying out the explosion, although they are considering the possibility that another extremist group was also involved.
