Moscow Bomb Alert Is Off (Or, Much Ado about a Can of Paint)

Moscow Bomb Alert Is Off (Or, Much Ado about a Can of Paint)
Yaroslavsky Railway Station

It's not often that you get a would-be terrorist to get out of his house and to the place where his car was parked, to explain to the police what on earth was happening with his car.

      A suspiciously looking car was discovered around 6pm on Thursday, 22 September, by the Yaroslavsky railway station. Many cars habitually park outside the station's building that stands close to the underground entrance, the Leningradsky railway station, and across the road from the Kazansky railway station. This square, linked to Komsomolskaya metro station, is known as Three Railway Stations Square, and is an extremely busy place.

      Following the discovery of the car, the square was shut off from the traffic and pedestrians, and a robot was sent to work on the scene. It all ended rather unexpectedly: the car owner saw a TV report, recognised his car, and went to the place. There he took out the "bomb" that turned out to be a can of paint, with a few wires wound around.

      The red alert in Moscow was placed in the aftermath of several terrorist attacks in Makhachkala in the Republic of Dagestan. Earlier it was reported that the police was put on alert by someone who overheard the talk about planned terrorist attacks in Moscow and elsewhere in Russia.
