Who are the Black Widows?

 

(FEDERALJACK)   In the past few days it’s emerged that Russia is hunting for three women it suspects of planning to carry out suicide attacks ahead of the upcoming Winter Olympics: Ruzanna Ibragimova, Djannet Tcakhaeva and Oksana Aslanova. These women are being referred to in the media as “Black Widows”, a chilling phrase that in recent years has become associated with some of the worst terrorist attacks Russia has ever seen, including the 2004 siege of a school in Beslan, South Ossettia in which 186 children were killed. The term refers to female suicide bombers who have usually lost a husband, brother or other close relative in the past two decades of violence between Islamist separatists in the North Caucuses region and Russia.
