Meanwhile, the Ministry of Emergency Situations (MCHS Russia) has posted the list of the dead. However, the MCHS site is currently down, likely due to the volume of traffic in the wake of the attacks as people are trying to find out if their relatives or friends have been affected.
However, some of the Russian news agencies have re-posted the list, saying twenty-two bodies have been identified so far. Sixteen victims remain unidentified. Here is the most up-to-date list with the names of victims in cyrillics.
Meanwhile, subway security has been stepped up in the United States. According to CNN, security on New York, Washington D.C. and Atlanta subway systems has been increased in the wake of Moscow subway bombings "as a precaution." Explosive detection teams and subway police will do station sweeps and random inspections throughout the day.
