Chechen suicide bomber kills 16 on crowded bus

A suicide bomber killed herself and at least 16 others yesterday when she detonated a belt filled with explosives underneath a packed bus ferrying personnel to the air force base at Mozdok, North Ossetia, which is Russia’s main launchpad for military operations in Chechnya. The bomber, described as a “young Chechen woman” dressed in a white medical frock, threw herself under the bus when it stopped at a railroad crossing just outside the Prokhladny air base, near the border with Chechnya. Survivors said they heard the woman shout “Allahu akbar!” (God is greatest) just before a powerful blast ripped through the crowded vehicle. Official reports said up to 40 people were aboard, including military personnel and about a dozen civilian workers. Full Story
