Teenage Widow ‘Was Moscow Metro Bomber’

Posted by Info on 04/04/2010

Russian authorities say they are almost certain that one of the suicide bombers who attacked the Moscow Metro on Monday was a 17-year-old girl from Dagestan.
The girl, Dzhennet Abdurakhmanova born in 1992, is believed to be the widow of a senior Caucasus militant Umalat Magomedov killed by Russian security forces late last year.
The identity of the second bomber has not been confirmed., but she may have been the widow of another Chechen militant killed last year.

“We must deal sharp dagger blows to the terrorists; destroy them and their lairs,” Mr Medvedev said. “The list of measures to fight terrorism must be widened. They must not only be effective but tough, severe and preventative. We need to punish.”

HOW! To continue the same way?

The attacks came almost a year after Mr Medvedev declared an end to Russia’s “counter-terrorism operations” in Chechnya, in a bid to “further normalise the situation” after 15 years of conflict that claimed more than 100,000 lives and left it in ruins.
