MOSCOW, Dec. 29 (Xinhua) -- Ten people were killed and another three were injured in an explosion at a railway station in southern Russia, the Interior Ministry confirmed Sunday.

Preliminary reports said three people died and ten others were injured in the blast, which happened at about 12:45 p.m. (0845 GMT) at the metal detection arches of the railway station entrance in Volgograd, a city near the volatile North Caucasus region.

The police are working on the site to investigate the incident.

In October, a female suicide attacker blew herself up on a bus in Volgograd, killing seven people and injured dozens of others. The attacker was later identified as the wife of Dmitry Sokolov, a man from the Moscow suburbs who joined an insurgent group in Dagestan.

In September, President Vladimir Putin warned that the situation in North Caucasus remained a challenge for state security. He urged all law enforcement departments to be mobilized to maintain law, order and peace in the region.
