VOLGOGRAD, Russia — Eerily empty buses lumbered through the streets, police weighed down with body armor warily watched pedestrians near a fast-food restaurant, and members of Cossack units stood guard at bus stops. Volgograd was an ominous and jittery city today, after two suicide bombings in two days that killed 34 people.
