Suspected 'Black Widow' suicide bomber kills 6 in southern Russia (near 2014 Winter Olympics)
Long War Journal ^ | October 21, 2013 | By Lisa Lundquist

A suspected "Black Widow" female suicide bomber attacked a bus in the southern Russia city of Volgograd today, not far from Sochi, the site of the February 2014 Winter Olympics. The attack is the first such incident in the region in over a year.

According to Russia's Federal Investigative Committee, a 30-year-old Dagestani woman named Naida Asiyalova boarded the bus at a stop, then detonated shortly afterward in an explosion that killed at least six people and wounded 32 others. There are thought to have been about 40 people on the bus.

Identity documents found near the blast site indicated that she was the wife of wanted Islamist militant Dmitri Sokolov, also known as Abdul Jabbar, who is a suspect in two bombings in Dagestan that injured 29 people. Asiyalova comes from Makhachkala, the capital of the insurgency-plagued republic of Dagestan. Makhachkala is about 500 miles south of Volgograd, the site of the attack.

How screwed up do you have to be to strap a bomb to yourself and detonate it among innoscent civilians? That's nine kinds of f*cked up.

It's 427 miles but in Russia that may be considered nearby.

Yes, in Western Siberia three days by car or two hours by jet considered “next door”. You can drive some 100 miles on the road without spotting any other person.

I live about 150 miles fro Sochi, and it takes 5 hours by train to get there (faster than by car)!

SNIPPET: “MOSCOW, October 21 (RIA Novosti) – Investigators in Russia said at least six people were killed Monday after a suspected female suicide bomber detonated an explosive device on a bus in the southern city of Volgograd.

Investigators said preliminary information indicated the attack had been carried out by Naida Asiyalova, a 30-year old woman from Russia’s republic of Dagestan, in the North Caucasus, which has been riven by unrest since the mid-1990s.”

SNIPPET: ““As of now, six dead people have been found, as well as the body of the suicide bomber” Markin said.

By evening, 28 people had been taken to hospital, including eight in serious condition, a city public health official told RIA Novosti. Around 50 people were believed to be riding the bus at the time of the blast.

The explosion took place at about 2 p.m. local time (10:00 GMT) in the Kransoarmeisk district in Volgograd, a city formerly known as Stalingrad.”

Wow. I guess it could have been worse. Palestinian bombers have wiped out whole busloads of people.

Looks like the Saudis are upping their ante.

I'm sure Uncle Sam and the rainbow warriors approve.

We’ve got a lot of people from the Caucasus here, but we haven’t had any trouble with bombs, etc. There is racial friction, but not terrorism.
