Doku Umarov, who leads Islamic militants in Chechnya and nearby regions of Russia's North Caucasus, says in a statement posted on a pro-rebel Web site that the attacks were an act of revenge for the killing of civilians by Russian security forces.

This guy won’t be alive one week from now.
Who wrote this headline, a 3rd grader? The AP employs some of the worst writers in the nation.
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
I don’t think I would want to be Chechen right now. The Russian police and military won’t care who’s toes they step on to find these guys. Sounds to me like we could learn some lessons here. Nahhhhhh......they have their rights.
OMG he so whack he going get so whack by KGB not even funny
Aren’t the Chechens supported by Iran?
They were supported by Iran—They were tossed under the bus by the Iranians who condemned the attack. Iranians are not stupid.
Dead man walking!!!
All this horrific attack did besides kill innocents was give Putin and his puppet free reign - a mandate even - to destroy a good sized chunk of Chechnya.
Brilliant move, idiot “rebels.”
Definitely!!! We could learn a lot from the russians!
The Russians actually WANT to solve thier problems and they don’t dither about playing nice.
Neither will hundreds, maybe thousands, of his otherwise-innocent neighbors. The Sov-, er, Russians aren't as concerned about politically-correct ROE's and collateral damage as other, more civilized, militaries.
Anybody want to try to explain why our state department broadcasts into Chechnia in chechen language??
