"The Park Kultury subway station in central Moscow, where the day’s second bombing took place, is close to Russia Today’s studio. One of the station’s anchors, Yulia Shapovalova, said that she had just finished her shift and was trying to board a train in the station when the explosion there took place. She shot some video on her phone outside the station and then returned to the studio to describe what she had seen, while obviously still shaken. ... The first image in this slide show on the Web site of Radio Free Europe shows crowds leaving the Park Kultury subway station in central Moscow after the bombing on a train there."
