VOLGOGRAD, Russia (AP) - It hasn't been much of a New Year's celebration in the Russian city of Volgograd, where two suicide bombings in two days killed 34 people earlier this week.
President Vladimir Putin visited the city before dawn today. He left a bouquet on the pile of flowers, balloons and other commemorative items at the site of one of the bombings, and then visited a hospital where some of the wounded are being treated.
