MOSCOW (Reuters) - St Petersburg's Sennaya Ploshchad metro station has reopened after being shut for several hours following an anonymous bomb warning, Russian agency RIA Novosti said on Tuesday.

The station was closed by metro authorities after an anonymous phone call earlier in the day. Monday's blast, which killed 14 people, happened as a metro train traveled between the "Sennaya Ploshchad" and "Tekhnologichesky Institut" stations.
