Russia: Anti-terror alert high with public gatherings "top priority" - Pavlov

Dmitry Pavlov, a representative of the National Anti-terrorism Committee spoke to the press in Moscow on Monday evening, following a second bomb blast in Volgograd. Pavlov told the media about further steps which are being taken in precaution, given the escalation in attacks.

"The National Antiterrorism Committee has distributed tasks among the anti-terrorism commissions and operations centres functioning in Russia's territorial subdivisions", Pavlov said. "Heads of constituencies, municipalities, local security and law enforcement agencies, as well as local representatives of the Investigative Committee, EMERCOM and Health Ministry have been appointed as personally responsible for the timely implementation of the measures within their scope of authority and in accordance with the current legislation. In order are additional security support measures, enhanced transport security protocols, including protocols for identification of any explosives or other dangerous objects. Among the priorities is protection of the citizens during public political, cultural or sports events. National Antiterrorism Committee emergency session has ruled that an increased level of cooperation between the security and law enforcement agencies, as well as public organisations and citizens in eradicating the terrorist threat is the foundation for successful implementation of the tasks set by the President of Russia", he continued.

At least 31 people have been killed in the attacks in Volgograd, with 14 passengers killed when their trolley bus exploded on Monday morning. The explosion comes a day after a suicide bombing in the Volgograd train station which killed 17 people and injured dozens.
