Sochi Police Searching for “Black Widow” Bomber

Black WidowSOCHI, Russia (WGGB) – Russian Police and other authorities are urgently searching for a possible female suicide bomber known as the “Black Widow.”

“Black Widow’s” are known in some terrorist groups as women who have taken over a terrorist role after their husbands die.

Posters and pictures of the 22-year-old woman from nearby Dagestan are being posted throughout Sochi in the weeks leading up to the Winter Olympics.

Police have launched an urgent search for this woman who they said may have already made it through the ring of security set up for the Olympic games.

The woman is identified as Ruzanna Ibragimova but is using the nickname Salima. She is the widow of a militant who was reportedly killed in a shoot-out with Police last year in Dagestan.

Ibragimova is being affiliated with the Caucasus Emirate, a terrorist group that has threatened attacks against the Games.

Experts are upping security despite the already heavy police presence in Sochi, because of the threat Ibragimova presents.

WGGB encourages readers to share their thoughts and engage in healthy dialogue about the issues. Comments containing personal attacks, profanity, offensive language or advertising will be removed. Please use the report comment function for any posts you feel should be reviewed. Thank you.

    There is no safe place to be in Russia during the games. Any country who sends their people there may as well just blow themselves up. Russia and Russians are a wart on the arse of humanity, and a large parking lot in it’;s place would be fine.

      Mr Missle: Can you explain please what you mean by that comment? I believe when the Olympics are over, you will agree I was correct, and I will be holding my breath for an apology.

    I stand by what I said. Sochi will be a bloodbath. Russian terrorists make Arab terrorists look like pussys. I hope the idiots who decided on Sochi are proud.
