Moscow under Terrorist Attack

Moscow was hit with two subway bombings during the height of rush hour, the bombings were 30 minutes apart.  At this point 37 are confirmed dead with a dozen more wounded.  Russia has a long history of terrorism from separatists groups, dating as far back as Stalin's time. Chechens are very loosely tied to al Qaeda.  They are attempting to break off from Russia and form an Islamic state, although much of the Chechen population is Russian Orthodox.  This is sixth such attack since 2004.
