Russian police arrested 3 people accused of ties to the subway suicide bomber


Russian police arrested three people suspected of ties to Akbarjon Djalilov, the man accused of a suicide bombing in a St. Petersburg subway station that killed 13 people and himself earlier this week.

Investigators found parts of a bomb in the people's apartment. They are all residents of Central Asia, as was Kyrgyzstan native Djalilov. Thousands of people from that region are believed to have joined ISIS. 

The square outside the Sennaya metro station has become a makeshift memorial.

On Wednesday, eight other people suspected of being ISIS and Al-Qaida recruiters were arrested in Russia. They were not suspected of being tied to the subway attack.

No terrorist group has yet claimed responsibility for the deadly attack. 

Here's another look at the memorials near the station.
