Commuter describes Moscow Metro blasts

At least 38 people have been killed after two female suicide bombers blew themselves up on Moscow Metro trains in the morning rush hour, officials say.

The first blast happened at 0756 (0356 GMT) as a train stood at the central Lubyanka station, beneath the offices of the FSB intelligence agency.

About 40 minutes later, a second explosion ripped through a train at Park Kultury.

Commuter Alan Broach has described what it was like to be trapped underground in the wake of the blasts, on his way to work.
