He had spoken to her about taking revenge for this bullying, RT reported Zlata as saying.

AP describes the deadly assault as "by far the worst by a disgruntled student in Russian Federation", adding that "the bloodbath raised questions about school security in the country; the Kerch Polytechnic College had only a front desk with no security guards".

Authorities and eyewitnesses say a teenager walked calmly through the Kerch polytechnic school shooting people seemingly indiscriminately with a shotgun before committing suicide.

Officials said an "unidentified explosive device" detonated at the technical college in Kerch, where Russian Federation has built a bridge between the peninsula and Russian Federation.

The committee's spokesman Andrei Przhezdomsky said sappers are inspecting the building for other explosive devices.

Trump jokes about Greg Gianforte body-slamming reporter amid Jamal Khashoggi's disappearance
Gianforte won by a six-point margin in 2017, but still faces re-election this year. "I think it's pretty evident", he said. He was ordered to pay $385 (£304), complete 40 hours of community service and 20 hours of anger management counselling.


Kremlin-appointed Crimean chief Sergei Aksyonov told Russian news agencies on Thursday that it is possible that the shooter had an accomplice.

Speaking to local media, the head of the college Olga Grebennikova said someone blew themselves up inside the college, leaving "the bodies of children everywhere".

Another student, Yuri Kerpek, told the state RIA Novosti news agency that the shooting went on for about 15 minutes.

"Canada remains steadfast in its support for the people of Crimea, who have endured extreme suffering since 2014, and we stand in solidarity with them", Freeland said.

Yet as the day wore on Thursday, neither Russian investigators nor other authorities followed up on Aksyonov's comments hinting at a wider attack plot. Kerch is the point on the peninsula where a bridge linking Crimea to Russian Federation makes landfall on the Crimean side.Putin opened the bridge to road traffic in May this year, getting behind the wheel of a truck to drive it across the bridge.

Several witnesses spoke of a gunman or gunmen and some mentioned a powerful explosion.

"A strong explosion went off, but thank God, I was already outside and saw our guys being thrown out of the windows by the explosive wave", said one student.

Another witness, who gave his name as Sergei and works near the college, said in a video on the Kerch.tv website that he heard "a bang and shots".

Health minister Veronika Skvortsova told journalists that most of those who died suffered gunshot wounds. The paper said that Roslyakov's mother is a Jehovah's Witness - a Christian organisation considered "extremist" and banned in Russian Federation.
