Abdurakhmanova is believed to be the bomber who attacked the Lubyanka metro station on Monday, killing 20 people, Russian media reported. She is a 17-year-old widow of a North Caucasus militant from Dagestan. Her husband is a leading Islamist militant, Umalat Magomedov, who was killed by Russian security forces at the end of last year.

Two female suicide bombers on Monday killed 39 people in attacks on the Moscow subway system. Authorities have linked the attacks to militants from the North Caucasus.

The second suicide bomber who detonated herself at Moscow's downtown Cultural Park metro station has been identified as a resident of the restive North Caucasus republic of Dagestan, an anonymous security service source told media on Thursday.

Russia's North Caucasus republics, particularly Chechnya, Dagestan and Ingushetia, have been plagued by violence, particularly against law enforcement officers, which local rebels see as representing the Russian authorities.
