'SMS-miner' stands trial in Minsk


34-year-old inhabitant of Mahilyou Province Kanstantsin Simanau wrote an SMS informing about his intention to activate an explosive device when he was in the metro (“I have a bomb, where is the activation code, tell me.”)

He is accused of several crimes ­– false information about the preparation for a blast that could threaten people’s life and health, huge losses (the metro lost 90 million roubles), rape, sexual activities with a minor and demonstration of pornography.
