People leave a subway station in downtown Moscow on Wednesday, June 5, 2013. A rush-hour fire in Moscow’s subway injured dozens of people, forced the evacuation of thousands of commuters and closed parts of the network on Wednesday, authorities said. As firefighters were putting out the fire, authorities closed one of the subway lines that cuts through central Moscow. Eyewitnesses say central Moscow streets were thronged with crowds who ended up walking to work. (AP Photo/Echo Moskvy, Andrey Poznyakov) less
