/NOVOSTIVL/ Officials in Russia say an explosion inside an elite military academy in the country’s second-largest city has wounded four people. This article appeared in the Associated Press.

Several windows were shuttered on the second floor of the building, and dozens of cadets were being led out of the gated compound.

An unidentified explosive device went off early Tuesday afternoon inside the prestigious Mozhaisky Academy in St. Petersburg, which trains officers for the army’s missile defense unit, according to acting governor Alexander Beglov.

Russia’s top investigative body says that it has launched a criminal inquiry into conspiracy to murder.

Authorities didn’t immediately give other details.
