Second Moscow Bomber a Teacher?

The second of two female suicide bombers who blew up subway stations in Moscow last week may be a 28-year-old teacher from the southern region of Dagestan, a Russian newspaper reports. The woman's father identified her from a photograph that had been circulating on Internet, says the paper Novaya Gazeta. "My wife and I immediately recognized our daughter Maryam," Rasul Magomedo said. "The last time my wife saw our daughter she was wearing the same red scarf as in the photograph." Magomedo said that his daughter, Maryam Sharilova, disappeared March 28, one day before the explosions. He did not know how his daughter managed to reach Moscow from their home. The other bomber has been identified as the 17-year-old widow of a dead Islamic militant, also from Dagestan.
