At least 14 people were killed and scores were wounded Sunday by a female suicide bomber at a railway station in southern Russia, officials said, heightening concern about terrorism ahead of February's Olympics in the Black Sea resort of Sochi.
No one immediately claimed responsibility for Sunday's attack in Volgograd, but it came several months after Chechen rebel leader Doku Umarov called for new attacks against civilian targets in Russia, including the Sochi Games.

It wasn't us ... because our religion is peaceful!
Note: Video of the event HERE. The same group of Muzzies as the one that gave us the Boston Marathon Bombers is suspected.
Well I hope Putin kicks out all those Amish terrorists before the olympics
One must always remember when reading these reports that Russia backs one of the world’s largest supporters of islamo-facist terrorism: Iran. So don’t take everything coming out of Russia as 100% fact. They are the masters of deception.
NO ONE seems to be overly anxious ... check out the pedestrians.
Do you realize a Shia-Sunni division?
Do you realize it wasn’t Iran but a Saudi “allies” who did 9/11? Do you realize that said Saudis also bombed USS Cole, not Iranians.
Do you realize that Iranian women aren’t wearing bags over their heads, they vote, drive vehicles and enjoy the rest of civil rights on par with men?
I’m not advocating Iranian regime here. It is nasty, but not near as dangerous and repressive as the rest muzzie regimes, including “friendly” to the US.
If you want to apply a Cold War terms, see Iran as a Poland or Germany of East Bloc (while “friendly” Saudi Arabia a North Korea of it).
The jihadists are a real security problem in southern Russia. Maybe now Obama and Kerry will begin to understand why Putin cannot allow nearby Syria to become dominated by al Qaeda led political Islamists. Syria would then become a base and haven for the jihadists.
Do you realize you just coined the headline following an Iranian nuke going off in Israel? "Iran nukes Israel - Iran is a good regime that allows its women to show their faces"
Sorry - couldn't help myself...
I doubt it will be like here when Holder and Obama let the bastards go back to where ever they came from..
Synopsis: Blowing Up Russia contains the allegations of ex-spy Alexander Litvinenko against his former spymasters in Moscow which led to his being murdered in London in November 2006. In the book he and historian Yuri Felshtinsky detail how since 1999 the Russian secret service has been hatching a plot to return to the terror that was the hallmark of the KGB. Vividly written and based on Litvinenko's 20 years of insider knowledge of Russian spy campaigns, Blowing Up Russia describes how the successor of the KGB fabricated terrorist attacks and launched a war. Writing about Litvinenko, the surviving co-author recounts how the banning of the book in Russia led to three earlier deaths.
Didn’t Iran do the Beirut barracks in 1983, among other things (like killing our men in the Iraq war)?
I wish both sides victory in eliminating the other. And the sooner the better!
Sochi is sure close to the “stans”. I suspect some serious security in place for these Olympics.
Alexander Litvinenko, the former Russian security agent fighting for his life in a UK hospital after allegedly being poisoned, has been a fierce critic of Vladimir Putin since before he became president in 2000.
Mr Litvinenko is thought to have been close to journalist Anna Politkovskaya, another opponent of the Kremlin who was shot dead last month, and said recently he was investigating her murder. It was after being handed documents apparently relating to the case that he was taken ill more than two weeks ago.
But he is perhaps best known for a book in which he alleges that agents co-ordinated the 1999 apartment block bombings in Russia that killed more than 300 people. He now appears to have fallen victim to the kind of plots which he wrote about.
Mr Litvinenko, 43, first became a security agent under the Soviet-era KGB, rising to the rank of lieutenant-colonel in its later incarnations.
He is reported to have fallen out with Vladimir Putin, then head of the security service, in the late 1990s, after failing in attempts to crack down on corruption within the organisation. In 1998, he first came to prominence by exposing an alleged plot to assassinate the then powerful tycoon Boris Berezovsky, who himself now lives in self-imposed exile in the UK. He was subsequently arrested on charges of abusing his office and spent nine months in a remand centre before being acquitted.
In 1999 he wrote Blowing up Russia: Terror from Within, in which he accused the current Russian security service, the FSB, of carrying out several apartment house bombings in 1999 that killed more than 300 people. The attacks, which Moscow blamed on Chechen rebels, helped swing public opinion behind Russia's second war in the breakaway republic.
Complaining of persecution, in 2000 Mr Litvinenko fled to the UK where he sought, and was granted, asylum. But after settling in an unnamed London suburb, the former spy continued to behave as if on the run, constantly changing his contact details. The Times newspaper reported that over the summer someone tried to push a pram loaded with petrol bombs at his front door. Appearing alongside high-profile opponents of President Putin, he has continued to make allegations about his former bosses.
Perhaps most notably, he alleged that al-Qaeda number two Ayman al-Zawahiri was trained by the FSB in Dagestan in the years before 9/11.
Do you not realize all the hostage takings, bombings, and terrorist attacks your poor little shia's have engaged in over the last 30 years??????????
They are the exact same EVIL only packaged differently.
Islam IS A KILLING RELIGION....it is one of its pillars of faith. Study the nasty religion before spouting stupid propaganda.
I read that too..It was a female but all the Muslim terrorist are evil male or female..
I wonder if she was a replacement for the others virgins in hell for the idiot male bombers../Sarcasm intended..
What do they have against athletic competition? Coach wouldn’t let them play on the school team?
Hey, to pay back Russia for helping Iran get a nuke, let’s work with the Chechs to build bombs.
NO ONE seems to be overly anxious ... check out the pedestrians.Yes! Really strange! Can't they hear or see?
I’ve become more cynical in the last ten years, of most everything, be it the media, government or Wall St. Way too much is now orchestrated for the benefit of politics and public opinion.
It could be the Chechens. Or it could be a crooked power hungry government that wanted an excuse to institute tyranny or more stringent security measures to control its citizens. It wouldn’t be the first time that false flags or provocateurs were used against citizens for such a purpose.
As some of our founding fathers had stated, the citizens would be wiser to be skeptical instead of being gullible and led like sheep.
Iran is a / the major conduit / supplier for weapons, training and terrorists killing our guys in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Let's not forget hezbollah.
“One must always remember when reading these reports that Russia backs one of the worlds largest supporters of islamo-facist terrorism: Iran. So dont take everything coming out of Russia as 100% fact. They are the masters of deception.”
...and the US supports Saudi Arabia, the Al-Quida linked rebels in Syria, and the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. Is Obama not a master of deception as well?
Obviously, the US under Obama is an entirely different story.
We need to be concerned about both Russia and Obama. Neither can be trusted. Both seek the same basic “new world order” involving a significantly weaker US.
You know what Vlady going be tick off
He don’t need NBC sports whine to him about lax of security
Tea Party activists?
That makes sense since the Russians should have good intelligence sources and be able to nip it in the bud. Too much of this is going on there for them not to know about it.
When they find out whodunit, the reprisal should be interesting
They may already know...
But the real enemy that threatens the olympics is homophobia.
the SUDANESE were held responsible for the Cole attack in YEMEN.
AL QAIDA took responsibility.
had that pubk bill clintons ambassador to Yemen at the time Barbara Bodine allow the troops aboard the cole to have LOADED WEAPONS the al qaida punks would have been blown out of the water before the were about to do ANYTHING.
Putin will go somewhere and apologize for his country and suck up to the muslims, and reach out to them and reason with them.
"And give them money too." /s
When was the last time American Troops were stationed in Iran vs Saudi?
Iran is much more of an enemy than Saudi Arabia.
Yep, keep up with a propaganda. Indeed, both are enemies but Iran is very different. In case of Saudis the majority of their people are your enemy, in case of Iran it is a government, ruling class and a few brainwashed idiots, not the majority which actualy dislike islamist rule. And the government itself is not as much an enemy.
Who are behind most of the terror acts worldwide right now? The answer is Saudi-backed Sunni terrorists aka Al-Qaeda. Iran and the rest of Shias no matter how nasty some of them are their targets because Shias considered infidels on par with Christians and Jews.
A fact that Saudis are allowing US troops on their territory doesn’t mean a thing as long as said troops are used to push for their agenda.
The bitter truth is that both Gulf Wars were actually fought for a Saudi cause. So were the State Dept involvement in Lybia and Egypt and attempted assault of Syria.
