Crimea college blast kills 13 in 'terrorist attack'

Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine deputy (Petro Poroshenko Bloc faction) and Chairman of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatars Refat Chubarov has said Russian Federation will use the tragedy at the Kerch technical school in occupied Crimea to pressure those not loyal to the Kremlin regime, including Crimean Tatars. "Where were the men who were there in large numbers?"

At least 18 people were killed - majority teenagers - and about 50 more injured following a bombing in Russian-annexed Crimea, according to Russia.

An 18-year-old student strode into his vocational school in Crimea, a hoodie covering his blond hair, then pulled out a shotgun and opened fire on Wednesday, killing 19 students and wounding more than 50 others before killing himself. Roslyakov had obtained his gun license only around two months ago, local officials said.

"An unidentified explosive device was blown up in Kerch", the NAC said.

Thirteen people were killed and 50 more wounded on Wednesday, majority teenagers, after a blast tore into a college canteen in Russian-annexed Crimea in what Moscow called a "terrorist" attack.

13 people have been killed after an explosive device filled with metal fragments went off in a college in Crimea.

Theresa May gets Brussels kiss-off as she fails to break Brexit deadlock
The extension idea angered pro-Brexit U.K. politicians, who saw it as an attempt to bind Britain to the bloc indefinitely. The UK leaves the European Union in March, and the current plan is for a transition period to finish at the end of 2020.

Russia's Investigative Committee, the nation's top investigative agency, said the attacker was caught on security cameras entering Kerch Polytechnic College in the Black Sea city of Kerch and firing at students. Numerous victims were teenage pupils at the school, The Associated Press reported.

Investigators are still trying to establish Roslyakov's motive and suggested they are treating it as a school shooting similar to those that have plagued the United States.

A somber-faced Putin deplored the attack as a "tragic event" and offered his condolences to the victims' families at a news conference in the southern city of Sochi, where he was meeting with Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi.

Twenty-one people were killed, including the suspected shooter, and scores were wounded in the October 17 shooting spree at a technical college in Kerch, according to Radio Liberty.

Pupils and college staff were among those killed, she said. "My colleagues and I believe, however, that he could not have plotted all the preliminary details all by himself", he said.

"The fact that he acted alone at the scene is understandable".

For Kerch, a city of 150,000 inhabitants in a strategic position in the extreme east of the peninsula, annexation led to the hugely costly construction of a bridge connecting it to the Russian mainland, opened by Putin in May, which shook up the previously sleepy city and has raised new fears about security.

Social media users have expressed their shock and sadness at the attack, posting photos of candles shining in the darkness, and using Russian hashtags that translate as #KerchWeMourn and #KerchWeAreWithYou.

The incident in Kerch was the bloodiest school shooting in Russia's history.

Aksyonov, the regional leader in Crimea, said the gunman had been described as a shy boy who had no conflicts.

Russian television reported that she works as an orderly at one of the hospitals that treated victims.

The head of a Crimean college said unknown gunmen had burst into the building, let off explosives, and started shooting anyone they saw.
