Russia:More Violence in Volgograd

A fresh surge in violence rocked the nation just a month shy of the winter Olympic games. Two bombings claimed the lives of more than 30 people at a train station and on a trolley bus in the southern city of Volgograd. The December 29 and 30 blasts injured another 60, and 5,000 police were deployed to patrol public transit and traffic in the area. New Year’s celebrations were canceled in the city as reports said that President Vladimir Putin vowed to fight “terrorists until their complete annihilation.” Officials say that the winter games in Sochi, about 14 hours away, will have the most extensive security measures in place than any other Olympic sporting event.
