(Source: Associated Press/AP Online)MINSK, Belarus - Belarus' Health Ministry says the death toll from a subway explosion in the Belarusian capital has reached 12 after another victim died at a hospital.

The Health Ministry said that 126 victims of Monday's blast have been hospitalized, and 22 of them remain in critical condition. Viktor Sirenko, the chief doctor of the Minsk Emergency Hospital, said Tuesday that many victims had their legs or arms missing.

The Oktyabrskaya subway station hit by the blast is within 100 meters (yards) of the presidential administration building. President Alexander Lukashenko suggested outside forces could be behind it.

Belarus' domestic security agency that still goes under the Soviet-era name KGB says it has identified a suspected bomber and was searching for him, but gave no further details.

                    • It all adds up to billions less for the Pentagon and the State Department than what Obama had requested for the budget year ending Sept. 30, a reflection of the widespread congressional belief that every element of government spending is on the chopping block in an era of trillion-dollar-plus deficits.
                    • The hard-fought deal negotiated by the president, House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., calls for $513 billion for defense, a cut of $18.1 billion from what the administration envisioned but $5 billion more than last year's amount.
