Probe: Russian nationalists committed bomb attack on train
After the bomb attack on the Nevsky Express between Moscow and St Petersburg on August 13 which injured 60 people, agents are now focusing on nationalist groups, the Russian agency Interfax reported Thursday.

The explosion was caused by a homemade, remote-controlled bomb near Novgorod Veliky around 500 kilometres north of Moscow.

Citing the Deputy Attorney General Alexander Bastrykin in a newspaper interview, Interfax reported that the attack was most likely a terrorist one carried out by nationalist youths from Moscow or St Petersburg.

However, detectives will keep following the "Chechen track" and possible other criminal backgrounds, an agent told Rossiiskaya Gazeta's Friday edition.
