"Black Widow" From Dagestan Behind Suicide Bombing In Russian Train Station Which Killed 16 - Scores Injured As Death Toll Expected To Rise

December 29, 2013

"Black Widow Perpetrated Attack"

The attack this morning by the train station in Volgorad was probably perpetrated by a 'Black Widow'. That is a group of women from Dagestan who were married to Muslim extremists. This was reported by the Russian channel RT.com.

The woman, Oksana Aslanova was being sought since June of 2012. According to RT.com she was twice married to a Muslim rebel who was later killed.

Help from men

Wives of fighters from the Caucasus have perpetrated suicide attacks in Russia before to avenge their dead husbands.

Life news reports that Aslanova probably had help from two men. This is apparent from pictures of the surveillance cameras at the entrance to the station.

16 Dead

No one has yet claimed responsibility for the attack. The death toll has now risen to 16.


"Zwarte weduwe pleegt aanslag"

De aanslag vanochtend op het treinstation in Volgograd is mogelijk gepleegd door een 'zwarte weduwe'. Dat is een groep vrouwen uit Dagestan die getrouwd waren met moslimextremisten. Dat meldt de Russische zender RT.com.

De vrouw, Oksana Aslanova, werd gezocht sinds juni 2012. Volgens RT.com was ze twee keer getrouwd met een moslimrebel die later omkwam.

Hulp van mannen

Vrouwen van strijders uit de Kaukasus plegen vaker zelfmoordaanslagen in Rusland om hun omgekomen echtgenoot te wreken.

Life News meldt dat Aslanova vermoedelijk hulp gehad heeft van twee mannen. Dat zou blijken uit beelden van een bewakingscamera voor de ingang van het station.

16 doden

De aanslag is nog niet opgeŽist. Het dodental is inmiddels opgelopen tot 16.
