At least 10 killed in trolley bus explosion in the Russian city of Volgograd, officials say

At least 10 people have been killed in a trolley bus explosion in the Russian city of Volgograd, according to officials, the third deadly attack in the past four days as the country prepares to host the Winter Olympics.
“A criminal case has been launched after the explosion in the trolley bus in Volgograd,” the Investigative Committee of Russia, the primary federal investigative agency in the country, said in a statement. “Preliminary findings show at least 10 are dead, 15 wounded.”
The National Anti-Terrorism Committee said the bus blast came from a bomb that most likely had been planted in the vehicle’s passenger area, according to the Associated Press.
On Sunday, at least 16 people were killed in a terror attack by a suspected female suicide bomber at a railway station in the city. And on Friday, a car bomb killed three people in the southern Russian city of Pyatigorsk, 170 miles east of Sochi.
In October, another female suicide bomber was blamed for a bus explosion in Volgograd that killed five people.
