The bombing was likely to raise fears of further attacks by Islamist militants as Russia prepares to host the 2014 Winter Olympics in February not far from the mainly Muslim North Caucasus. The attack, which investigators blamed on a 30-year-old woman from Dagestan, also wounded 28 people, eight of whom were in critical condition. (Source)
