MOSCOW, October 25 (Itar-Tass) - Suicide bomber Naida Asiyalova who committed a terrorist attack in a bus in Volgograd was acting without accomplices, the Russian Investigative Committee's spokesman Vladimir Markin told Itar-Tass.
As is established after an analysis of the materials, Asiyalova had no contacts with anybody when she was in Volgograd. It is confirmed by the examination of the transport. Particles of explosives were found in the bus, in which Asiyalova arrived from Makhachkala and in the car of a private driver, Markin said. Thus, it is established that Asiyalova independently transported the explosive device from Dagestan in the Makhachkala-Moscow bus and in the private car in Volgograd.
The video from cameras where Asiyalova is seen is examined, and it confirms that Asiyalova was alone, without accomplices, everywhere, the official said.
Naida Asiyalova, the terrorist that blew up the bus in Volgograd, lived in Russia’s capital and worked in a Moscow-based company for several recent years, official representative of the Investigative Committee Vladimir Markin previously told Itar-Tass.
“The deceased was native of the Republic of Dagestan, but the last few years she lived in Moscow, regularly making trips to her homeland. Among of her last jobs was one in a Moscow-based commercial company,” he said.
