FSB: Teacher Was Bomber

The Federal Security Service confirmed Tuesday that one of the two suicide bombings on Moscow’s metro last week was carried out by a 28-year-old teacher from Dagestan whose father recognized a photograph of her detached head.

The FSB said evidence showed that Mariam Sharipova, a university-educated computer science teacher, was the bomber who died at the Lubyanka metro station. The one who died at Park Kultury had been identified earlier as Dzhanet Abdurakhmanova, the 17-year-old widow of an Islamic militant slain by government forces.

The FSB said Sharipova was believed to have been the wife of Magomedali Vagabov, an Islamist warlord operating in Dagestan.
