Russian Police Arrests Three In Connection To Domodedovo Terrorist Attack
Russian authorities announced on Wednesday that three people were arrested in relation to the suicide bombing in January at the Domodedovo international airport, in Moscow, in which 36 people lost their lives.
Police identified Magomed Yevlovyev, 20, as the suicide bomber, and his 16-year sister and Akhmed, his 15-year brother, were arrested in Ingushetia this week along with a 23-year acquaintance of the bomber.
Russian media reports that the three will be send to Moscow, where they will be questioned about the circumstances related to the terrorist attack in the airport.
On a post on a website of an Islamist movement, Umarov said that many other such attacks are being prepared to be executed in Moscow as a means to convince the authorities in Moscow to withdraw from the Caucasus region.
He who calls himself the “emir of Caucasus” said that the attack on Domodedovo was aimed at the regime of Prime Minister Vladimir Putin.
Umarov dreams of establishing an Islamic fundamentalist state in the Caucasus, formed of Dagestan, Ingushetia, Chechnya and other provinces in the area of the Russian Federation.
In the wake of the dreadful attack, President Dmitry Medvedev sacked all the security senior staff of the airport, considering it a shame that someone could have carried inside the airport tens of kilos of explosive without any problem at all.
Soon after the attack, Prime Minister Vladimir Putin said that this terrorist attack cannot go unpunished and promised retaliation for it.11
