‘Leave me alone!’: Misidentified St. Petersburg bombing suspect says life has turned into nightmare

Recommended Posts

Ilyas Nikitin, a bearded truck driver whose photo was published by the media as that of the main suspect in the aftermath of Monday’s terrorist attack in St. Petersburg, has been interviewed by the police three times, taken off flights, and says he has been fired from his job.

Nikitin was on the train where the explosion, which killed 14 people, took place, and exited Sennaya Ploshchad station alongside hundreds of other unhurt passengers. However, his beard and characteristic Muslim-style kaftan made him stand out on CCTV.

Before there was any official confirmation from the police, several blurry photos of Nikitin were distributed by dozens of media outlets.



Yep, he's the one they splashed all over!
