As Russia prepares to host the winter Olympics another deadly attack after a female suicide bomber blew herself up at a train station Sunday with more than a dozen people feared dead. The head of Russia's Investigative Committee says a child is among the wounded. (SOUNDBITE) (Russian) HEAD OF RUSSIA'S INVESTIGATIVE COMMITTEE, VLADIMIR MARKIN, SAYING: "As a result of the blast 14 people died, including one policeman. 27 injured were injured and they have been hospitalized, including one child. According to our information the explosion was carried out by a female suicide bomber who approached metal detector, saw policeman there, got nervous and detonated the bomb." The Volgograd station was busier than usual, with people traveling home for the New Year holidays. But it could have been worse. MOSCOW, RUSSIA (DECEMBER 29, 2013) (REUTERS - ACCESS ALL) (SOUNDBITE) (Russian) HEAD OF RUSSIA'S INVESTIGATIVE COMMITTEE, VLADIMIR MARKIN, SAYING: "According to preliminary information the power of this explosion was the equivalent of 10 kg of TNT. There could be many more victims if the so-called guarding system at the train station didn't work. It did not allow the suicide bomber to get through the metal detector into the waiting hall where at the time were lots of people because three trains were late." Sunday's blast comes after another female suicide bomber killed seven people in the same city in late October. On Friday, a car bomb killed three people in a city in southern Russian.
