Russian Suicide Bombers Included 17-Year-Old Insurgent’s Wife

April 2, 2010

Russia (ChattahBox) – Russian authorities have identified one of the two suicide bombers who killed 39 in Moscow this week as the 17-year-old wife of an insurgent that died in December.

Dzhennet Abdurakhmanova was married to Umalat Magomedov, an insurgent who was killed by Russian security forces in December 2009. She is from the Dagestan region, and dressed in the traditional manner of a Muslim woman from the Caucasus Mountains.

The teenager is shown here, posing with her husband in a photo distributed by NewSteam, a Russian news source.

Abdurakhamanova conducted the first suicide attack at the Lubyanka subway station, during the early morning rush. The second bomber has not been identified.

President Dmitri Medvedev came forward in a speech, calling both for harsher measures against insurgents, and understanding from the citizens of Russia.

“This is a very sensitive topic. Everyone must understand — and not just understand but use the appropriate terminology — that people who live here in the Caucasus are the citizens of our nation, not ‘immigrants’ from the North Caucasus.

“A huge number, the vast majority of people who live here are normal, honest and decent, but there are some criminals as well. Of the people living in all other parts of our country, the overwhelming majority are normal and perfectly decent people, but there are some criminals, too.”
