    (CNN) -- Another deadly blast has struck the southern Russian city of Volgograd, killing at least 14 people and further highlighting Russia's security challenges as it readies to host the Winter Olympics in less than six weeks.

    An explosion hit a trolleybus near a busy market during the morning rush hour Monday, a day after a blast at Volgograd's main train station killed 17 people and wounded at least 35 others.

    Like Sunday's attack, the blast Monday was a terrorist act, Vladmir Markin, a spokesman for the country's federal investigation agency, told the state-run news agency RIA Novosti.

    No one claimed responsibility for the explosions. But they come several months after the leader of a Chechen separatist group pledged violence to disrupt the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics

    Believe it or not Volgograd would be a place I'd like to visit. A lot of history was made there in 1942 when the city had a different name....Stalingrad.

    Vlad will soon be asking for Barry's help and hell will freeze over.
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    I was thinking that Putin may be responsible for both blasts as a way
    of clamping down and grabbing more power. How hard would it be for his
    Secruity Forces to set up and supply the terrorists???

    You know, kinda what the DUmmies always said Bu$h and Cheney did
    with Katrina...

    No so far fetched. Hitler did it with the Reichstag fire. He also orchestrated the attack on the radio station that precipitated the invasion on Poland.

    Especially with the Olympics coming. The world will be watching, and he doesn't want an attack to occur on his Olympics.
