Moscow Airport Bomber Sent By Terrorist Doku Umarov Who Has Led The Chechen Rebels For Years, Despite What Fox News Says.
FOX NEWS...'ROSTOV-ON-DON, Russia – Russian authorities named a suspected suicide bomber of Moscow's airport and arrested his teenage brother and sister, an official said Wednesday.
The Jan. 24 2011 bombing of Domodedovo airport was conducted by 20-year-old Magomed Yevloyev, said an official working with Russia's top investigative agency in the province of Ingushetia. He spoke on condition of anonymity because he wasn't authorized to publicly discuss the issue.
Officials have previously said that the bomber was a 20-year-old man from the Caucasus, but didn't give his name. Chechen rebel warlord Doku Umarov has claimed responsibility for the attack that killed 36 and injured more than 180.
Umarov said in a video posted Monday that he ordered the airport bombing and that many more such attacks will follow if Russia does not allow the Caucasus to become an independent Islamic state governed by Sharia law.Umarov has claimed responsibility for an array of terrorist attacks, including last year's double suicide bombing of the Moscow subway system that killed 40 people. He is seen more as an ideological than a military figure, as many militant cells operate autonomously and shun centralized command.
Some observers have questioned Umarov's claim. Ben West, an analyst at Stratfor, a global intelligence analysis company, said in a written comment that Umarov could have claimed the attack to boost his profile after a fallout with other rebel leaders last fall. Russian officials have said that militants in Chechnya are linked to al-Qaida and other foreign terror groups and depend on them for funding. West said that Umarov has not had any known links to the militants in Ingushetia, which raises doubts about his claim of responsibility.
The village Ali-Yurt is in Ingushetia (Russia) which is just over the border from the Pankisi Gorge in South Ossetia (Georgia) which has been home to the "Chechen Rebels" (al-Qaeda linked) for many years. The Pankisi Gorge is a valley region in Georgia, in the northeastern corner of the country, bordering the Chechnyan republic of the Russian Federation.
After the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991, the Chechen-Ingush ASSR was split into two: the Republic of Ingushetia and Republic of Chechnya. The latter proclaimed the Chechen Republic of Ichkeria, which sought independence from Russia and is home to the "Chechen Rebels" led by Doku Umarov.
Doku Umarov is thought to head a network of Muslim terrorist separatist cells across Russia’s volatile and mainly Muslim North Caucasus region that are fighting to break free from Moscow’s rule. The rebels are blamed for regular attacks on law enforcement officials in the region’s five autonomous republics, after two bloody separatist wars in Chechnya.
MOSCOW, Wednesday, 31 March 2010 19:33 UK — A Chechen rebel, Doku Umarov, leader took responsibility on Wednesday for the double bombing that killed 39 people on the Moscow subway system two days ago, and he warned Russians that he was plotting more attacks in revenge for what he called the repressions against Chechens ordered by Prime Minister Vladimir V. Putin.
The statement by the rebel leader, Doku K. Umarov (dirtbag), was posted via Internet video hours after another double bombing that killed at least 12 people in Dagestan, which like Chechnya is part of southern Russia’s restive Caucasus region. That attack appeared to be aimed at the police, according to the Russian prosecutor’s office.
Doku Umarov is the leader of the Islamic Caucasus Emirate an al Qaeda affiliate in the Caucasus, operating in and about the Pankisi Gorge in South Ossetia (Georgia).
Situated in the eastern part of the North Caucasus, partially in Eastern Europe, Chechnya is surrounded on nearly all sides by Russian Federal territory. In the west, it borders North Ossetia and Ingushetia, in the north, Stavropol Krai, in the east, Dagestan, and to the south, Georgia. Its capital is Grozny.
GROZNY, December 6/06 (RIA Novosti) - Chechen warlords were trying to get to Western countries via Georgia, official spokesman for the regional counter-terrorist HQ in the North Caucasus, Major-General Ilya Shabalkin told RIA Novosti. "Georgian officials have provided refugees from the Pankisi Gorge with the opportunity of moving to any European countries. According to the returning refugees and some other sources, including detained bandits, warlords are trying to make the most of this circumstance," said Gen. Shabalkin. "To this end, middling warlords try to get to Georgia via Chechnya disguised as refugees.
This is the category of bandits who could have accumulated substantial funds by cheating other ordinary members of the illegal armed formations," said Gen. Shabalkin. According to the returned refugees, Shamil Basayev [a Chechen separatist warlord now dead] has turned to leaders of international radical extremist groups based in Arab countries, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Turkey and some others. He allegedly assured them of his readiness to continue bandit activities in Chechnya and to organize terrorist attacks all across Russia," said Gen. Shabalkin.
