MOSCOW, April 5 (Itar-Tass) — Law-enforcement personnel detained two female suicide bombers in the North Caucasus in January. They were headed for a Russian town in order to carry out terrorist attacks, spokesman for the National Antiterrorist Committee /NAK / Nikolai Sintsov told reporters on Thursday.
"Thanks to timely information from citizens, two trips by potential suicide bombers to a central Russia city for carrying out acts of terror have been prevented," Sintsov said.
He declined to elaborate, nor did he name the suicide bombers' place of destination.
"An investigation is still underway," Sintsov said.
