Video Shows Small Explosion At Moscow Bus Stop
A video posted on the website for the Moscow television outlet LifeNews, apparently security camera footage, shows a small-ish blast and a bystander who was not obviously injured by the explosions. According to the report, 4 people were injured in the incident which police are calling "hooliganism," a catch-all term for anything, from protesting to criminal behavior, which is in defiance of the state:

Взрыв на остановке в Москве сняли камеры наблюдения

Сильный хлопок, который раздался на остановке в центре Москвы, попал на камеру видеонаблюдения.

Update: Russian State Press Says 3 Injured By Homemade Explosive Thrown At Bus Stop

Sputnik, another English-language Kremlin propaganda outlet, has further details on tonight's explosion thrown at a bus stop in northeastern Moscow:

"An unknown explosive device was thrown into a group of people standing at a bus stop," a Moscow police spokesman said, adding that the incident took place at near 19 Pokrovka Street.

"Moscow police are working to establish the circumstances and causes of the explosion. An investigative team is on the scene," Moscow Internal Affairs Ministry representative Andrey Galiakberov said, according to RIA Novosti.

"According to preliminary data, the cause of the explosion at the bus stop loacted on Pokrovka street, could be a homemade firecracker, thrown from a passing car window or an apartment building."
The victims were reportedly three women, injured by broken glass, two of whom were taken to a nearby hospital, though their injuries do not appear to be life-threatening.

They are also carrying one picture we have not seen yet of the scene:

Moscow Police Quickly Brand Reported Bomb Attack An Act Of "Hooliganism"
The Russian state-controlled media is now carrying the story that Moscow police are calling tonight's reported bomb attack at a bus stop on northeast Moscow a case of "hooliganism," the broadly-defined term which has been used to describe both terrorists and anti-Putin protesters.
It's unclear how the Russian authorities so quickly ascertained the details of this attack. Again, RT is also quoting Moscow police spokesperson Andrey Galiakberov that it was a home-made device which caused this explosion.

First Pictures From Explosion At Bus Stop In Moscow
A Twitter user has uploaded several pictures of emergency crews responding to a reported explosion at a bus stop in Moscow.
He also shared this Periscope video. It's hard to make out because it is very short.

So far all we know is what we have reported earlier, that according to LifeNews, a Moscow television outlet with suspiciously-close ties to the Russian security apparatus, three people have been injured at an explosion at a bus stop.
