A radical disguised as a holidaymaker penetrated into the area of the Marhaba Imperial Hotel and opened fire on vacationers killing 38 people and injuring nearly 40. The Russian woman was among the dead. Islamic State said it was behind the terrorist attack.

"Tatiana Khomenko’s body was delivered to Moscow at about 14.30 Moscow time (11.30 GMT). The plane had made a stopover in Brussels," he said.

Earlier, her daughter - Yekaterina Khomenko, who was wounded in the terrorist attack, was evacuated from Tunisia where she had undergone a surgical operation financed by the country’s government. The young woman arrived in Moscow on July 5 and is receiving treatment in a hospital.
