A deadly bombing on a packed trolleybus in the Russian city of Volgograd was caused by a male suicide bomber, investigators said Monday, as the official death toll rose to 14 people, AFP reports.

"The explosives were detonated by a male suicide bomber, fragments of whose body have been found," the Investigative Committee said, adding that the kind of explosive used showed the trolleybus attack and a deadly strike Sunday on Volgograd train station could have been jointly planned.

Health ministry spokesman Oleg Salagai told Russian state television that 14 people were killed in the trolleybus bombing and 28 wounded. President Vladimir Putin ordered security stepped up across all of Russia after bombings, the national anti-terror committee announced.





The day before, on December 29, there was another explosion at the railway station in Volgograd city, when a female suicide bomber blew herself up in a train station in Volgograd.

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.
