Dzhennet Abdurakhmanova, 17 years old, from the town of Kostek in the southern region of Dagestan, was one of the two bombers who headed to the Lubyanka and Par Kultury stations where they diffused several kilograms of explosives that were attached to their bodies. A total of 40 people died in the incident.

The identification was confirmed by the National Anti-Terror Committee of Russia.

Abdurakhmanova has been named by the media as the “black widow.” She was the wife of Umalat Magomedov, a Dagestani rebel killed last December 31 in an operation by the Russian forces. Reports indicate that they met through the Internet.

Her first name Dzhennet was derived from the Arabic word “Jannat” which means paradise.

The other woman of the twin attacks has not been identified as of this moment.
