Dash Cam Video Captures Russian Bus Bombing That Killed Six

At least six people were killed and more than 30 others were injured today when a suicide bomber detonated an explosive device onboard a bus in the southern Russian city of Volgograd. What appears to be the blast was captured on a driver's dash cam video below.

Please note that while the video is not explicitly gory, it does capture a crime that resulted in the loss of human life.

The BBC reports that the suicide bomber was believed to be a female member of the Islamic insurgency in Dagestan in the North Caucasus.

The region has seen a rise in such attacks in recent years which have resulted in hundreds of deaths; more are expected as the 2014 Winter Olympic Games near.

From the BBC story:

Our correspondent says that all buses in Volgograd have been ordered back to their depots to be searched for any sign of explosives.

One man whose daughter survived the explosion told Moscow Echo radio: "It was a powerful explosion - a huge blast. There were lots of students on the bus."

More on this as we get it.
