The committee's spokesman Andrei Przhezdomsky said bomb technicians were inspecting the building for other explosive devices.

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

Russian President Vladimir Putin said the attack was a tragedy and offered condolences to the victims' families.

Sergei Aksyonov, Moscow's senior official in Crimea, said 18 people were killed and dozens more were injured.

But a Russian national guard official said the incident was a deliberate "terrorist act".

The committee said early estimates suggested that 10 people had been killed and more than 50 wounded in the explosion, which took place in the college cafeteria.

"There are a lot of victims, they have been loaded into fast cars", a journalist for Kerch FM said.

An employee at a hospital in Kerch was quoted as saying that 18 people had already been admitted with injuries from the explosion, and that doctors were expecting around 50 more wounded people to be brought in.

At least 17 people were killed and 40 others were injured on Wednesday at a vocational college in Crimea.

Crimea, officially part of Ukraine, was seized by Russian Federation in 2014 and annexed after a disputed vote that was widely condemned by the global community.
