US Condemns Suicide Bombing in Russia

No group has claimed responsibility for the bombing at the railway station in Volgograd


The Obama administration harshly denounced the actions of those responsible for Sunday's deadly suicide bombing in southern Russia, vowing to stand alongside Moscow in its counterterrorism efforts. 

"The United States condemns in the strongest terms today's terrorist attack in Volgograd," State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said in a statement late Sunday. 

"We send our sincere condolences to the families of the victims and stand in solidarity with the Russian people against terrorism of any kind," she added.
