Thumbs down [3/29] Russia: Dozens killed in Moscow subway blasts

Female suicide bombers blamed in Moscow subway attacks - CNN.com

Moscow (CNN) -- Explosions rocked a pair of central Moscow subway stations during morning rush hour Monday, killing at least 37 people and wounding 10 others, Russia's Emergency Situations Ministry said.

The first blast occurred about 8 a.m. at Lubyanka subway station. That explosion killed 25 people -- 14 aboard the train and 11 on the platform.
The Lubyanka station is near the Kremlin and the nation's intelligence service, the Federal Security Service.

Another blast happened about 30 minutes later at Park Kultury station, on the same train line. The Emergency Situations Ministry reported 12 dead in the second explosion. Russian TV said the blast killed 15 people and injured at least 10 others.

Millions of commuters use the Moscow metro system every day.
Officials immediately cast suspicion on Chechen separatists for the explosions. A female suicide bomber in August 2004 killed nine people and herself, and wounded 51 others, when she detonated a bomb outside a subway station in northeastern Moscow. In February 2004, a suicide bomber detonated a bomb on a Moscow metro train, killing 40 people and injuring 100 others. A suicide attack in 2003 killed 15 people at a Moscow concert.

Chechen terrorists killed hundreds in 2004 at a school in Beslan, Russia. They also were suspected in the downing of two Russian airplanes that year in an attack that killed 89.

Chechnya is a southwestern Russian republic, in the Caucasus Mountains region. The Chechens have long fought for independence from Russia.
Chechnya's population of 600,000 to 800,000 is primarily made up of Sunni Muslims and Russian Orthodox Christians. Thousands have been killed and 500,000 Chechen people have been displaced in their conflict with Moscow.
Fucked up way to go.
