Chechen terrorists had motive to commit terrorist act

Security measures of Moscow's Domodedovo airport do not stipulate the 100-percent examination of passengers' luggage

As PRAVDA.Ru reported before, law-enforcement officers evinced interest in two passengers of the Chechen origin during the investigation of the two plane crashes.

S.Jebirkhanova was flying aboard the Tu-154 and Aminat Salm.Nagayeva was a passenger of the Tu-134 liner. Nagayeva was born in the settlement of Kirov, the Vedeno district of Chechnya and then she moved to Grozny. The relatives of the two women do not seek them and show no interest in their fates.

Twenty-seven-year-old Chechen female Aminat Nagayeva could have a motive to commit the terrorist act. One of her three brothers disappeared several years ago. Apparently, he had been arrested by the federal forces, the Izvestia newspaper wrote.

As far as the second suspect is concerned, investigators determined she was born in the Shali district of Chechnya. The Chechen Interior Ministry has not found any information about the woman yet. “The two women are missing in our database,” a spokesman for the Chechen Ministry said.

”I would not make any comments yet for the sake of the investigation,” FSB spokesman Sergey Ignatchenko said. According to the preliminary expertise, the explosive found on the crash site of the Tu-134 jetliner was hexogen. The expertise continues.

Security measures of Moscow's Domodedovo airport do not stipulate the 100-percent examination of passengers' luggage to detect explosives, KM.Ru reports. Special devices to trace explosives in bags and suitcases are used selectively, depending on the situation. Metal detectors of the airport are capable of detecting cold steel, fire-arms, grenades.
