    Security officials in Russia say they have made important breakthroughs in the investigation into the fatal bombing of the Moscow metro.Russian police say video surveillance has revealed the two suspected suicide bombers had accomplices. They are searching for two women and a man seen with the suspected bombers at a metro station outside central Moscow on the morning of the attack. Moscow's Echo radio is also reporting there is new evidence that links the suspects to Chechnya. The station says a private bus driver has confirmed he drove the suspected bombers and a man from the Chechen capital, Grozny, to...

    As Russia mourned the 39 commuters who died in Monday’s suicide bombings, speculation mounted over the political consequences for the country. Previous high-profile terror attacks have been followed by political crackdowns. Many believe similar curbs resulting from the blasts on the capital’s underground rail network could endanger the modest democratic reforms announced last year by Dmitry Medvedev, Russian president. Some analysts are referring to the present period as a “thaw” following the more authoritarian rule of Vladimir Putin, president from 2000 to 2008 and now the country’s prime minister. “In Russia a thaw can release forces of chaos which then...

    MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said militants operating on the Afghan-Pakistan border may have helped organise suicide bomb attacks that killed 38 in Moscow on Monday, Interfax news agency reported. Two female suicide bombers attacked Moscow metro stations during the Monday morning rush hour. Both likely had links to the North Caucasus, the centre of an Islamist insurgency against Moscow, the head of Russia's FSB state security service said. Some Russian officials have said that the insurgents in the North Caucasus, which includes Chechnya, Ingushetia and Dagestan, have ties to al Qaeda, though many analysts have disputed...

  • Double suicide bombings kill 37 on Moscow subway

    MOSCOW — Two female suicide bombers blew themselves up on Moscow's subway system as it was jam-packed with rush-hour passengers Monday, killing at least 37 people and wounding 102, officials said. The head of Russia's main security agency said preliminary investigation places the blame on rebels from the restive Caucasus region that includes Chechnya, where separatists have fought Russian forces since the mid-1990s. The first explosion took place just before 8 a.m. at the Lubyanka station in central Moscow. The station is underneath the building that houses the main offices of the Federal Security Service, or FSB, the KGB's main...

    Two female suicide bombers have blown themselves up aboard packed underground trains at the height of the rush hour in Moscow this morning, killing 38 people and leaving an estimated 65 injured, according to the Russian security service. President Dimitri Medvedev is due to reassure the nation in a television address later today, pledging no let up in the war against terrorism and promising a security crackdown on public transport. The first blast came at the Lubyanka station in central Moscow at around 8am (0400 GMT), killing 24 people. The station is deep below the headquarters of Russia's Federal Security...

    Earlier last year Russia announced that they were ending their counter terrorism operation, and were pulling their troops out of Chechnya. They had allowed Chechnya to govern under self rule with the brutal Ramzan Kadyrov running the show. This was supposed to in bring peace, but as see across the world, there will be no peace with the religion of war. ‘Black widows’ kill 38 in Moscow suicide attacks: Manhunt for bombers’ accomplices after rush-hour carnage

    No More Hawaii Islam Days By Sam Slom, 12/29/2009 10:28:53 AM Okay, I don’t know about you, but I’ve had it. The latest airline bomb attempt by a radical Islamic terrorist flying to Detroit is the last straw. And the response by President Barack Hussein Obama vacationing in Hawaii today, and Secretary of Homeland Defense Janet Napolitani\o is a disgrace and embarassing. Daily, the evidence mounts that our intelligence and security is clueless. Despite spending more billions, inconveniencing American travelers more, the system and the process are flawed. At the center of the failure is the continuation of giving Muslims...

    Rockville (AP) - Hundreds of Latino immigrants - many of them illegal - gathered this afternoon in Rockville to protest proposed federal restrictions that would deny driver's licenses to illegal immigrants. The federal Real I-D Act is part of the bill covering the costs of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. It has been passed by the U.S. House and endorsed by the White House. Opponents say the bill will likely pass in the Senate - maybe as early as next week. Maryland is one of ten states that don't require applicants to prove they are citizens or legal residents....

    "Stay quiet, and you'll be OK." -- Mohammad Atta, 9/11 terrorist, speaking to the passengers and crew of the airplane that was flown into the first of the twin towers of the World Trade Center. Atta's admonition to the ill-fated people aboard the doomed airliner sounds as though it applies equally to the American press as it communicates to its readers. Don't ask questions, and listen calmly to us, and everything will be all right. Not! A draft report from the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks upon the United States, also known as the 9/11 Commission, was released two weeks...

    Ramallah, West Bank - It remains to be seen whether Israel dealt a serious blow to what it termed the "terrorist infrastructure" in the West Bank, but the Palestinian governmental infrastructure built over the years by Yasser Arafat clearly has been battered - ministries are ransacked, files and computer disks missing, office equipment wrecked. In Ramallah, the Palestinians' de facto capital from which Israeli troops made a partial withdrawal on Sunday, officials are seething with anger over the destruction of seven years of work on a structure to run what they hoped would be a Palestinian state. What had been...
