Islamic Supremacist Says He Ordered Russian Bombing
It is the same motive, the same ideology thr world over. Islamist rebel says he ordered Russian bombing Reuters (hat tip Harry) Islamist rebel leader Doku Umarov said on Monday he had ordered a suicide bombing that killed 36 people at Russia's busiest airport last month.
Umarov, 46, speaking in a video carried by the Islamist website www.Kavkazcenter.com, said there would be further such attacks in pursuit of an independent Muslim state governed by Sharia law in Russia’s Caucasus region — a territory embracing Chechnya, Dagestan and other nearby territories.
Umarov appeared in the video, apparently made on the day of the January 24 attack on Moscow’s Domodedovo airport, wearing combat fatigues, talking quietly and hesitantly.
“The special operation today in Moscow … was carried out on my orders,” said Umarov, who styles himself the Emir of the Caucasus.
“These special operations will continue … to show the chauvinist regime of (Russian Prime Minister Vladimir) Putin in Moscow … that we can carry out these operations where we want and when we want,” he said, pointing a finger toward the camera.
The attack bore the hallmark of Caucasus rebels but Monday’s video was the first time Umarov had claimed direct responsibility for it.
The attack on Moscow’s Domodedovo airport took place in a crowded terminal building on a busy late afternoon. Russian officials say the suicide bomber was a 20-year-old native of the North Caucasus.
