Law enforcers checking if blast in Volgograd carried out by Dagestani woman

MAKHACHKALA, December 29, 17:43 /ITAR-TASS/. Law enforcers in Russia’s North Caucasian region of Dagestan and in neighboring regions of North Caucasus are checking whether or not Sunday’s act of suicide bombing in the southern Russian city of Volograd might have been committed by a female resident of the respective regions.

“Such checks are underway in all regions of the Caucasus and there’s no precise data on whether or not the female suicide bomber came from Dagestan,” a source at the regional Interior Ministry told Itar-Tass.

In the first place, the checks concern the female relatives of the eliminated and active militants, for instance, Aksana Aslanova, the wife of militant Gasan Abdullayev.
