Second Terror Bombing in Russia

Posted on | December 30, 2013 | 9 Comments

More than 30 people killed in two days:

A deadly suicide bombing at a crowded railroad station in southern Russia on Sunday, followed by a blast in a trolley bus on Monday in the same city, raised the specter of a new wave of terrorism six weeks before the Winter Olympics in Sochi. . . .
Russian officials attributed the explosion on Sunday to a bomb packed with shrapnel, possibly carried in a bag or backpack. It was detonated in the main railroad station in Volgograd, a city 550 miles south of Moscow and 400 miles northeast of Sochi. The bomb blew out windows in the building’s facade and left a horrific scene of carnage at its main entrance. At least 17 people were killed, and nearly three dozen others were wounded, some of them critically, meaning the death toll could still rise.
On Monday morning a blast struck a trolley bus in the city, killing at least 15 people, including an infant, according to preliminary reports. Photographs posted by Russian news organizations showed that the force of the blast tore open the bus and shattered windows nearby. Nearly two dozen others were wounded in what officials immediately described as a suicide bombing.

Via Memeorandum.

    Has ABC’s Brian Ross been able to locate any Tea Party members in Volgograd?

    Russia was never a good idea. There will more of this before, during, and after Sochi.

    Must’ve been “extremist” Christians. I’m sure that Mark Potok and the SPLC will get right to the bottom of it.

    The Chi Coms managed to keep their dissidents under control (although it helps when they are mostly peaceful Tibetans and just a small number of Muslims). Let’s see what Uncle Vlad has in store for his trouble makers.

    Security around the Olympic sites and Village will be extremely tight, so the obvious targets will be transportation going in and out, trains and buses, mainly.

    Im betting on Vlad. I will be surprised and disappointed if there are more successful attacks.
