Russia: 15 Killed in Suicide Bombing

A female bomber at a train station:

More than a dozen people were killed Sunday when a blast ripped through a railway station in the southern Russian city of Volgograd in what authorities say was an attack carried out by a suicide female bomber.
If confirmed, the presumed attack will prove to have been the second in the city in the space of just a little over two months and will provoke deep anxiety as Russia readies to host the Winter Olympics in Sochi early next year.
Investigative Committee spokesman Vladimir Markin said 15 people were killed and more than 30 people injured in the blast at 12:45 p.m. (0845 GMT) near the metal detectors at the front entrance to Volgograd-1 train station.
The remains of a suspected suicide bomber were discovered at the scene of the blast and will undergo DNA testing, Markin said.
“A suicide bomber approaching a metal detector saw a policeman near it and, after growing nervous, set off an explosive device,” the Investigative Committee said in a statement.
Almost half of the victims are in a critical condition and doctors are fighting to save their lives, Volgograd region governor Sergei Bozhenov said.
Among the injured is a nine-year-old girl whose mother shielded her with her own body at the time of the blast, city mayor Irina Guseva told reporters. The woman died at the scene and the girl is in a critical state.

This bombing is almost certainly the work of Islamic extremists associated with the Chechen separatist movement.

    Maybe wearing a Burqua to hide the explosives maybe?

    It’s good to see that equal opportunity has finally reached Islam.

    As I understand it, the Egyptian government either has already, or is in the process of, designating the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization.

    According to claims, from Egypt, they have a treasure trove of documents tying the criminal marxist regime of Hussein Obama to said terrorist organization.

    One report says she was carrying 20 lbs worth of explosives and if she had gotten through the gate the toll could have been in the 100′s.

    Oh and its 1 month to the olympic games. 400 miles away.

    Did the NYT write an article yet that it wasn’t Hillary’s fault?

    It would not surprise me if Obama were in bed with the MB. After all, he and Hillary and their advisers kept insisting that they were reformers. On the other hand, the entire Middle East (with the exception of Israel) is rife with idiotic conspiracy theories.

    Yup, better lock up that guy who made the video again.

    It will certainly be interesting to see what materializes out of Egypt over the next few months.

    The Chechens have been using female suicide bombers at least since Beslan.

  • Dianna Deeley

    I want to believe that. Which just means that it’s too good to be true.

    This is a global fight and we should prudently enlist global allies in our efforts to further expose the criminal marxist regime of ineligible usurper Hussein Obama.
