MOSCOW, December 29, 18:01 /ITAR-TASS/. Female suicide bomber set off her explosive device after she had caught sight of a police officer at the entrance to Volgograd’s railway station, spokesman for the Russian Investigative Committee Vladimir Markin told Itar-Tass on Sunday.
“According to the available information, the bomb was detonated by a female suicide bomber who saw a police officer near a metal detection frame as she was approaching it,” he said. “She got nervous and blew herself up with the help of a projectile explosive device.”
Preliminary estimations of explosive yield showed an equivalent of nearly ten kilos of the TNT, he said.
“Besides, there would have been a greater loss of lives if the so-called cordon system hadn’t been so efficient,” the spokesman said. “The bomber couldn’t pass through the metal detection into the waiting lounge where people were crowding due to delays in the schedules of three trains.”
Markin said that the suspected suicide bomber’s remains collected at the site of bombing had been sent for forensic studies aimed at identifying her personality.
