Three people killed in Russian armed robbery: official
Two Russian security guards and a passer-by were killed Tuesday in a robbery as they were transporting cash to a bank, the investigative committee in Saint Petersburg said.
"The security guards were attacked by two unknown people as they were transporting money from an armoured car to a bank on Leninsky Prospekt (southwest of centre)," a spokesman for the committee told AFP.
The guards were killed by bullets along with a man who happened to be walking his dog nearby. The attackers fled with the money. A criminal probe has been opened.
