Posted on 12/29/2013 9:19:12 PM PST by kristinn
At least 10 people have been killed and 10 others injured in an explosion on a trolleybus in the Russian city of Volgograd, Russian media report.
The blast comes a day after 17 people died in a suicide bomb attack at the central station in the city.
Security has been tightened at railway stations and airports across Russia.
Moscow is concerned militant groups could be ramping up violence in the run-up to the 2014 winter Olympic Games in the city of Sochi.
The Olympic venue is close to Russia's volatile north Caucasus region.
Volgograd lies about 900km (560 miles) south of Moscow, 650km north of the North Caucasus and 700km north-east of Sochi.

During WWII it was called "Stalingrad", you might have heard about it.
Shades of Israel in the late 1990’s! Vlad gonna get real mad!
Volgograd used to be named Stalingrad, the sight of the infamous seige during WWII. That said, this muzzie thing won’t end until China and Russia resolve to say enough is enough. Then it’s game over.
GLADD strikes back!
"The Motherland Calls!"
WOW, she be tall!
I think Putin loves even numbers, being an orderly Marxist Bureaucrat.
On my list of things I want to see.
So the Saudis won’t control their Chechen ‘clients’ after-all.......
And here is the money quote:
Bandar told Putin, "...The terrorist threat is growing in light of the phenomena spawned by the Arab Spring. We have lost some regimes. And what we got in return were terrorist experiences, as evidenced by the experience of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and the extremist groups in Libya.... As an example, I can give you a guarantee to protect the Winter Olympics in the city of Sochi on the Black Sea next year. The Chechen groups that threaten the security of the games are controlled by us...
Is this two in two days? Wonder what Bammy is thinking right now?
Two minds, one thought. :-)
So the question is was it Muslims, other dissidents, or the orderly Marxist Bureaucrat Putin creating an excuse to crack down on his political elements?
Far Far from Moscow.
The edge of the empire.
At least no apartments were harmed in this one.
Is it to be held there?
That will be a serious issue.
I suspect Ivan Attitude to show up shortly.
Russian media reports up to 15 killed, 20 wounded, windows blown out in buildings near bombing.
