In Russia, authorities broke up a gang of female suicide bombers who were about to go into action:
Russian security services have broken up what they described as a terrorist cell in a Muslim region of the country that was preparing female suicide bombers for attacks on major Russian cities, officials announced on Monday.
They said six women had been arrested who had already written “farewell letters” as they were being prepared for deployment. But the officials did not disclose whether attacks were imminent, or any other details about planning.
Two men were also arrested, including one said to have played a role in attacks by two female suicide bombers on two subway stations in Moscow in March, which killed 40 people.
