The photo, published online by Islamic State’s Dabiq magazine, shows a soft drink can and what looks like a detonator and switch – purportedly the makings of an improvised bomb.

They also showed another photo of Russian passports, supposedly belonging to the victims of the bombing, that IS terrorists had obtained.

According to RT the authenticity of the images have yet to be verified.
