Caucasus Islamists claim Russia train bombing
Source: afp

AFP - Islamists from the North Caucasus have claimed responsibility for the deadly bombing of a Russian passenger train, according to a statement posted Wednesday on a website linked to Chechen rebels.

"This operation was prepared and executed along with other acts of sabotage, planned from the start of this year and successfully carried out against a set of strategically important sites in Russia, on the orders of Caucasus Emir Dokku Umarov," said the statement on the website KavkazCenter.com.

Umarov is the self-proclaimed leader of the "Caucasus Emirate," which has sought to unite various Islamist groups in Russia's North Caucasus and establish Islamic Sharia rule in the region.

Friday's bombing killed 27 people and injured around 100 more passengers on the Nevsky Express, an upscale passenger train running from Moscow to Saint Petersburg popular with well-off Russians.

2. So, any bets who wins the bloody massacre that's coming?
They'll call it religion but it will be over diminishing resources due to climate change. Won't that be fun?

4. Gotta go with Vlad and his presidential puppet.
It's hard to beat (former) KGB guys for ruthlessness.
