Russian military cadet arrested over terrorism charges

SAINT PETERSBURG: A student at a military academy in Russia's second city Saint Petersburg has been arrested and charged with "complicity in terrorism", a court said Thursday.

Cadet Vadim Osipov was ordered to be held in custody until June 9 as investigations continue, the press office for the military court said, without giving more details about the case.

The announcement of the arrest comes in the wake of a deadly bomb attack on the city's metro system on April 3 that killed 14 people.

Officials made no link between Osipov's detention and the metro bombing. (APP)
