Belarus Bomb Kills 12 in Subway

A bomb exploded in a subway station in Belarus Monday night, killing at least 12 people. The nation’s autocratic president, Alexander Lukashenko, said someone was trying to destabilize the country and suggested it came from abroad. "Regardless of who organized and ordered the blast, the government will be tempted to use it as an excuse to tighten the screws,” said one opposition leader. A similar attack happened in the country in 2008.
