Russian woman converts to Islam, and then blows herself up

19 Nov

Happy: Aminat Kurbanova, 29, of Dagestan, Russia, is seen smiling on her wedding day in 2003 to Marat Kurbanov. She converted to Islam four years later and blew herself up earlier this year

Kurbanova walked into the home of Sheikh Said Atsayev, 74, after kissing her daughter goodbye and blew herself up with a steel-bolt bomb, killing seven others – including the cleric himself and a 12-year-old boy who was there with his father.

At least 12 religious leaders have been killed over the last two years in Dagestan – allegedly by militants angry that they are too friendly with the authorities. Atsayev could have been targeted because he spoke against violent Islam.”
