Brother 15, sister 16 Arrested For Domodedovo Blast, Charged With Terrorism

Posted by Info on 09/02/2011

Magomed Khazbiev, an Ingushetian Human Rights activist, was scathing about the arrests, “There is no need to go to these lengths. To arrest minors, particularly a girl! It is absurd and barbaric to take people just because they are the relatives of an alleged terrorist.

The teenage brother and sister of Magomed Yevloyev
, believed to have blown himself and 36 others up in Domodedovo’s arrivals hall last month, have been picked up by police.
Akhmed, 15, and Fatima, 16, are suspected of helping their older brother, 20, of planning and executing the attack. They were arrested with Umar Aushev, 23. All three are charged with terrorism, murder, and illegal purchase and possession of weapons.

Although the bomber has not been officially named yet, anonymous officials told Interfax on Sunday that he was believed to be Magomed Yevloyev.
