LAHORE – The two suicide bombers who carried out the Moscow attack are thought to be part of a suicide squad trained in Pakistan’s Al Qaeda strongholds and sent to the capital to target the city’s transport system, The Telegraph reported on Wednesday.
Russian security services warned in December that there were two teams primed to carry out the attacks. A newspaper close to Russia’s FSB security service published what it claimed was a warning to Moscow police issued in December that said there was credible intelligence that a suicide squad made up of three women and one man from Chechnya was headed to Moscow.
The memo said the team had spent time in Pakistan and Iran, adding that another group of five Islamist militants trained in Pakistan was also expected to cross into Russia soon, it added.
