has the latest on one of the planes hijacked in Russia and then blown up.
According to CNN
The prosecutor general said a man identified by his last name as Artyunov was illegally selling airline tickets at the airport. He helped the two women obtain tickets after taking 2,000 rubles ($69) from one and 3,000 rubles ($103) from the other.
He then bribed a Siberia Airlines official responsible for controlling passenger registration and boarding by paying him 1,000 rubles ($35). The suicide bomber was able to board the plane en route to the southern Russian town of Sochi.
The prosecutor general also said the two women, identified as Aminat Nagayeva and Satsia Dzhebirkhanova, from Grozny, Chechnya, earlier had been taken into custody when they arrived at Moscow's Domodeveo airport accompanied by two Chechen men.
Police officers confiscated their passports and handed them over to a police captain responsible for anti-terrorist operations for a further check. The captain let them go without checking them and they set about obtaining tickets for the later flights in the same building.
$172 was enough to board a plane and blow it up. How disgraceful.
The Command Post has the latest on the Beslan school children who went back to class yesterday.
Students nervously returned to school here on Wednesday for the first time since hundreds of children and their parents were killed in a violent end to a mass hostage-taking at a Beslan primary school.
At Beslan's Number Six school, students filed past a police guard posted at the main entrance and armed with an automatic rifle while similar strict security measures were also in place at other schools in the southern Russian town.
"I wanted to come today," said Ilona Zandiyeva, a 10-year-old student at the school. "I am a little bit scared, but I miss school."
What else can I say, you have to move on. The fact that bombers got onboard that flight for some simple bribes in appalling though.
