     BLAST The explosion happened at the Polytechnic College in Kerch Crimea

Emergency officials said earlier that the blast had been caused by a gas canister explosion.

National guard units had reached the scene of the "act of terrorism"' he told Interfax.

In a video posted on the Internet, a woman identified as the director of the college, Olga Grebennikova, said there were "many corpses, many corpses of children" and called it "a real terrorist act".

Russian President Vladimir Putin's spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, told reporters that officials were looking into a possible terrorist attack.

The Russian national anti-terrorism committee, a government body, said the explosion at a polytechnic was caused by an "unidentified explosive device", according to Russia's Tass state news agency. Many of those injured are reportedly in serious condition and medical students have flocked to the hospitals to assist.

Emergency services and ambulance cars are working at the scene of the accident.

"At the moment, there are 13 dead and about 50 wounded, a lot of them teenagers".

Witnesses report that schools and nurseries are being evacuated across Crimea following the blast, and the school is being inspected for other possible bombs.

However, Russian press service Krymgazsety reported that the college building was not connected to the central gas supply system, casting doubt on the theory.

"The area adjacent to the college has been cordoned off and an evacuation of people who were in the building has been carried out. The scene of the incident is being investigated by FSB explosives specialists".

Kerch is the site of the western end of a newly built bridge linking Russian Federation to Crimea, which it took over by force after Moscow-friendly Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych was pushed from power by pro-European protests in Kyiv.
