About 40 people were on the bus at the time of the explosion, which blew out all the windows on the bus, according to the Emergency Situations Ministry.
At least 8 of the thirty wounded are in serious condition and the death toll could rise. It was the first attack on a bus since 2008, when a female suicide bomber blew a bus up in the North Caucasus region, a hotbed of radical Islamic activity.
It is believed that today's bomber is from Dagestan, “one of the predominantly Muslim republics in the North Caucasus.” Vladimir Markin, the spokesman for Russia’s main investigative agency said.
The bomber has been identified as Naida Akhiyalova.. At the time of the writing of this story, no group has taken credit for the attack.
