It was reported that several loud bangs were heard right before the explosion rocked the college canteen, with people running and screaming.

Olga Grebennikova, the college's director, told Crimean media outlets outside the college that someone had blown themselves up inside the college and that the bodies of children were everywhere.

13 people have been killed after an explosive device filled with metal fragments went off in a college in Crimea.

The blast was initially thought to have been caused by a gas canister but Russia's anti-terror agency, the National Anti-Terrorism Committee (NAC), said an "unknown explosive device" was used.

Russian Federation annexed Crimea from Ukraine in 2014, a move that triggered Western sanctions and worldwide condemnation.

"They ran up to the second floor with automatic rifles - I don't know with what - and opened doors.and killed everyone they could find", she said.

Dmitry Peskov, spokesman for Russian President Vladimir Putin, told reporters that officials are looking into the possibililty it was a terrorist attack.

Putin voiced condolences to victims and their loved ones and ordered the authorities to evacuate badly injured victims by air to "leading" hospitals in Moscow and other cities, Peskov said. Preliminary figures are 50 injured and 10 dead.

Around 20 people have been rushed to hospital by paramedics and doctors are expected around 50 more wounded.

Some earlier reports had quoted officials saying it was a gas explosion, but a spokeswoman for the regional gas-distribution company said it had no contract to supply gas to the college.

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

The bomb blast took place in the city of Kerch, which is the entry point for a new 19km bridge linking Crimea to mainland Russian Federation.
