Video: Islamist Rebel Says He Ordered Russian Bombing In Domodedovo

Posted by Info on 08/02/2011

Islamist rebel leader Doku Umarov, 46, speaking in a video carried by the Islamist website, said there would be further such attacks in pursuit of an independent Muslim state governed by Sharia law in Russia’s Caucasus region — a territory embracing Chechnya, Dagestan and other nearby territories.

Apparently made on the day of the January 24 attack on Moscow’s Domodedovo airport, wearing combat fatigues, talking quietly and hesitantly. <em>”The special operation today in Moscow … was carried out on my orders,” said Umarov, who styles himself the Emir of the Caucasus.

“These special operations will continue … to show the chauvinist regime of (Russian Prime Minister Vladimir) Putin in Moscow … that we can carry out these operations where we want and when we want.”
