Izvestia, April 4, 2017

A candle-lit vigil for the victims of a bombing in St. Petersburg was pictured on the front page of Russian newspaper Izvestia. In an article entitled "St. Petersburg Survived," the paper reported that the Monday attack had failed to cause mass panic in the city.

At least 11 people were killed and scores others injured after a bomb exploded on Monday afternoon between the metro stations Tekhnologichesky Institut and Sennaya Ploshchad.

Law enforcement is investigating a suspected suicide bomber's links to radical Islam but so far no group has claimed the attack. Authorities declared three days of mourning in St. Petersburg. World leaders offered their condolences to Russian President Vladimir Putin.

"I'm very clear, as the people of the UK were after the attack in London, that we will prevail. The terrorists will not win," said British Prime Minister Theresa May, according to the BBC.
