Chechen Rebel Leader Claims Airport Bombing; Threatens More Terrorism Until Chechnya Is Free

The Associated Press website reports today that a website -- affiliated with Chechen rebels -- released a video today (February 7, 2011) in which insurgent leader Doku Umarov claims responsibility for last month's deadly suicide bombing at Russia's largest airport, and threatens more bloodshed if Russia does not allow Chechnya to become an independent state governed by Sharia (Islamic) Law.

The Kavkaz Center website said it received the video late today.

The January 24 suicide attack on Moscow's Domodedovo Airport killed 36 people. Russia said the bomber was a 20-year-old man from the Caucasus region, which includes Chechnya.

"More special operations will be carried out in the future," Umarov says in the video.
