MOSCOW – A woman who blew herself up at a train station in Russia, killing herself and 15 others and injuring 30 more; 9 of them are critical.
Russia media reports that on Sunday, a female suicide bomber blew herself up not far from the metal detectors located at the entrance of the train station in the city of Volgograd.
There were lots of people at the train station who were taking advantage of their holiday vacation and were traveling to celebrate New Year’s and the Orthodox Christmas Fest on January 7th.
The Russian Minister of Internal Affairs says that thanks to alert police officers, lots of people were spared their lives. The Minister said that two officers noticed the woman acting suspiciously and stopped her before she could enter the Central Station.
According to the Minister, that’s when she detonated the bomb. “No doubt the death toll would have been much greater if she had gotten inside the station,” the Minister said.
A spokesperson said the bomb was constructed of ‘flying metal parts’ which eject on explosion, causing more people to get killed and injured than if the bomb would have been a solid device.
Volgograd, which was called ‘Stalingrad’ from 1925 to 1961 has been the focal point of terrorist attacks recently.
In October a man blew himself up while riding a public bus killing himself and six other passengers and injuring 30 more.
The city is located about 360 miles north of the Caucasus and has become the center for disputes between the Central Russian Regime and Islamic extremists who are members of the Separatists movement.
Vladimir Putin ordered on Sunday to increase security measures throughout Volgograd and the rest of the country, which is preparing itself for the Winter Olympics in February in Sochi, situated West of the Caucasus.
