Russian police have found an unexploded grenade at the scene of Volgograd’s train station terrorist attack on Sunday.

Earlier it was revealed that the bomb used by the Volgograd suicide bomber was equivalent to at least 10 kg of TNT. The explosive core was covered with metal fragments to make the bomb more deadly.

So far, 16 people have been confirmed dead, while at least 45 were injured.
