Bus Bomb Kills 5 in Russia's Volgograd, Terror Suspected
An explosion killed at least five people on a bus in the southern Russian city of Volgograd early Monday afternoon.
The blast was caused by a bomb, the BBC reported, citing a statement of Russia's National Anti-Terrorism Committee.
The blast happened just after 2:00 pm (10:00 GMT). It also injured more than a dozen people, some seriously.
Investigators suspect a female suicide bomber, Russian news agencies report.
Cities to the south, in Russia's North Caucasus, have seen attacks by Islamist militants in recent years.
