KGB eller islamister bakom tågbomb ?

Nevskyexpressen, snabbtåget mellan Moskva och
S:t Petersburg har för andra gången utsatts för ett
bombattentat. Denna gången dödades minst 39
personer. Är det återigen islamister från Tjetjenien
med omgivning som slår till ? Eller är det en ny
provokation från de gamla KGB-nätverken för
att destabilisera den instabila ryska demokratin ?
Debka File har färska och initierade spekulationer:
The second bomb which exploded Saturday, Nov. 28,
at the site of the Nevsky Express which was derailed
Friday between Moscow and St. Petersburg crash
site injured no one. It was less powerful than the first,
which left 39 dead and 90 injured Friday near the
town of Bologove. The Russian authorities confirmed
a bomb of app. 7 kilos of TNT threw the train off the
tracks when it was travelling at 200 mph. Elements
of an explosive device were found at the scene where
rescue teams are still digging for missing passengers.

The 661-seat luxury Nevsky Express is used by high
officials, tycoons and tourists to commute between
Moscow and St. Petersburg. Russian authorities say
a list of victims will be released as soon as they are
identified. North Caucasian Islamist terrorists are
suspected of responsibility.
DEBKAfile's counter-terror sources note that the
same train was targeted by terrorists in 2007.
Sixty passengers were injured then, but no one
was killed. Two Chechen suspects were charged
Our counter-terror sources report that attacks
by North Caucasian terrorist groups linked to al
Qaeda are on the rise in Russia inside and outside
their home ground - and not only in Chechnya but
also in Dagestan, Ingushetia and Kabardino-Balkaria.
This Friday too, the commander of the Dagestan
interior ministry's anti-terror task force SOBR was
shot dead and a large bomb exploded near the
southern train tracks to Makhachkala.
A second bomb was discovered near a central pipeline.
In Kabardino-Balkaria, police arresting suspects in
a car came under gunfire.
