The women had arrived at the airport the evening of Aug. 24, accompanied by two other Chechens, Ustinov told Interfax. “Police officers spotted them, confiscated their passports and handed them over to a police captain responsible for anti-terrorism operations to examine their belongings,” he was quoted as saying in the Wednesday report. “The captain let them go without any check, and they started to try to obtain tickets in the same buildings.”Full Story
