A student at a vocational college in Russian-annexed Crimea allegedly took his own life after detonating an explosive device on Wednesday that killed at least 18 people and injured dozens more.

Russia's National Anti-Terrorism Committee identified the suspect as Vladislav Roslyakov, an 18-year-old student, and said he committed suicide by shooting himself.

"There are already lots of people in the emergency room, and in the operating theatre", the TASS news agency quoted the employee as saying.

Sergei Melikov said the explosion had been caused by an improvised explosive device.

Russian Federation annexed the Black Sea peninsula of Crimea from Ukraine four years ago, prompting worldwide condemnation and Western sanctions.
