Moscow, Feb 1 (ANI): A Russian woman has claimed that she was threatened by the terrorists, who unleashed last week's airport bomb in Moscow, that they would kill her baby girl if she refused to become a 'Black Widow' suicide bomber.
Zeinat Suyunova, who has fled the Islamic extremist group, has said that she was trained for the airport bombing, or a planned attack on a shopping centre almost underneath the Kremlin, the Daily Mail quoted Russian investigators, as saying. hey also said that Suyunova was shocked to discover that her Muslim husband, whom she had met at a medical academy in southern Russia, was involved in a terrorist attack.
The terrorists had later reportedly kidnapped her, separated her from her daughter, and even threatened to kill the child unless she became a bomber to take revenge for her husband's capture by the Russian secret services.
"They threatened to kill my daughter if I did not agree to go to Moscow and help with explosions. They kept threatening, on and on, and in the end I agreed. I did not have a choice. My daughter was kidnapped by these people. I was told that either I go and do the explosion, or my daughter will be killed," she told investigators.
She was reportedly kept in a hotel with another young woman named Aminat in Moscow, as they were trained for explosions at Domodedovo airport, and an underground shopping centre close to Red Square, the paper said. minat, believed to be the wife of an extremist leader in strife-torn Dagestan, was killed accidentally detonating a belt packed with explosives. Suyunova then fled to the south of Russia where she later gave herself up, and is now back in Moscow assisting the FSB secret services, it added.
The terrorists carried out the airport plan, killing 35 people, but avoided the shopping centre attack.
As of now, it is unclear whether or not she has been re-united with her baby. (ANI)
