The death toll from last month's suicide bombing of a bus in the Russian city of Volgograd has risen to seven.

Volgograd officials said on November 18 a 59-year-old female resident of the city died in a Moscow clinic.

A female suicide bomber, identified as Naida Asiyalova from Russia's North Caucasus Republic of Daghestan, blew herself up on the bus on October 21. The explosion killed six people and wounded dozens more.

Five of those injured in the attack remain in hospitals in Volgograd and Moscow.

Russian authorities announced over the weekend that Asiyalova's husband, Dmitry Sokolov, was killed in a special operation in Daghestan.

Sokolov was suspected of having helped Asiyalova obtain the explosive device used in the bombing on the Volgograd bus.
