Russia’s Female Menaces | The Daily Beast
By Anna Nemtsova
Much of Russia is in mourning this week. In simultaneous vigils across the country, which are commemorating the terrorist attacks that have shaken the nation in recent years, citizens are bringing flowers and paying tributes at sites made infamous by suicide bombers. In Moscow alone, there are 12 such makeshift altars—locations where terrorists blew themselves up along with dozens of innocent Muscovites.
More than 100 of those deaths in recent years have been at the hands of women. And many of those female suicide bombers hail from Dagestan, a violent region in the North Caucasus.
