Bombers 'Will Be Punished'

Deputy Prosecutor General Vasily Kolmogorov said Sunday that Moscow still hoped to bring to justice everyone suspected of involvement in the 1999 apartment building bombings that killed more than 300 people.

"We don't doubt that sooner or later all terrorists and bandits guilty of killing hundreds of people in Moscow and in other Russian cities will be brought to justice and be duly and severely punished," Kolmogorov said, speaking on the three-year anniversary of the first explosion.

He said that some of the alleged organizers, including key suspect Achimez Gochiyayev, may be hiding in Georgia.

Also Sunday, the Federal Security Service reported that in the last three years, some 2,014 explosions have occurred in Russia, killing 1,088 people and injuring 1,500, Interfax reported. The FSB said that 359 of the explosions appeared to have terrorism links.
