Belarus Blast Charges

MINSK — Two Belarussians have been formally charged with terrorism over the April 11 bomb attack at a Minsk metro station that killed 14 people, the state-run BelTA news agency said.

The charge carries a penalty from eight years imprisonment to execution.

BelTA quoted Deputy Prosecutor General Andrei Shved as saying the two "carried out a terrorist act which killed people and caused damage on an especially broad scale."

Until Friday, the two Belarussians had been held only on suspicion of taking part in the bombing, which injured more than 200 people.
