At least 15 people were killed and 23 wounded in an explosion on a crowded trolley bus in Volgograd, southern Russia, according to the Interfax news agency.

Volgograd is on high alert today, Monday, after a female suicide bomber attacked a train station in the city, killing 18 people.

Russia’s National Anti-Terrorism Committee said the trolley bus explosion at 8:45 AM local time was most likely caused by a bomb, but there were no further details.

Svetlana Smolyanova, senior spokesperson for the Volgograd Region interior ministry, told Interfax that rumors of more terror attacks in Volgograd—a second tram blast, or an attack on a factory belonging to the Monolith conglomerate—are completely unfounded.

“There are no other bombings to report. People have constantly been phoning in with questions regarding that, but there’s nothing to confirm the rumors,” she insisted.
