Female Moscow suicide bomber identified

Police investigating terrorist bombings are often aided by the intact remains of those who blew themselves up – suicide vests and belts are inclined to leave easily identifiable upper bodies with attached heads at the scene.

Russian police are therefore reasonably certain as to the identity of at least one recent bomber:

The 17-year-old widow of a North Caucasus militant is suspected of being one of the suicide bombers who attacked the Moscow metro on Monday.

Exactly what a female "martyr" is meant to do with 72 virgins over an eternity in heaven is uncertain. It could make an interesting documentary, however.
