Russian train station blast death toll 14: investigators



MOSCOW- Fourteen people were killed and 34 injured Sunday when a female suicide bomber blew herself up in a train station in the southern Russian city of Volgograd, investigators said, revising down an earlier toll.
A Volgograd government spokesman had earlier told the state-run RIA Novosti news agency that at least 18 people were killed and more than 40 injured in the attack.



The federal Investigative Committee, Russia's equivalent to the US FBI, said one police officer was among the dead. A nine-year-old child was also injured, it added in a statement.
"A suicide bomber who was approaching a metal detector saw a law enforcement official and, after growing nervous, set off an explosive device," the Investigative Committee statement said.
