Muslims shouting “Allahu Akbar” is not unusual, even in Russia, but this time, the shouter was a burqa-clad Muslim woman holding a child’s severed head who was arrested near a metro station in Moscow, shouting, “I am a terrorist,” and reportedly threatening to blow herself up.
RT Earlier on Monday, reports emerged that police had found a child’s headless body while extinguishing a fire at a Moscow apartment block. The child was about three or four years old, Interfax reported, citing sources.
The woman, identified as Gulchekhra Bobokulova from Uzbekistan, in her late 30s, committed the murder because of her husband’s betrayal. According to LifeNews sources, she failed to explain how the child was connected to her husband.

The suspect waited until the child’s parents left the apartment with an older child, then killed the child and set the apartment on fire, the Investigative Committee said. The dead girl, who is said to have had learning difficulties and could not walk, had a 15-year-old brother. She suffered damage because of birth problems in August 2011.
The woman was seen pulling the severed head out of a bag and walking around near the entrance to the metro station as police moved in. According to local media, she shouted: ‘I hate democracy. I am a terrorist. I want you dead.

The victim was a girl, identified as Nastya M. After the murder, the female suspect went to a metro station, where she was stopped by a local police officer. She immediately took the severed child’s head from her bag and started shouting that she had killed the child. The suspect is currently being detained by police authorities, Russian media reported.
“The end of the world is coming in a second…I’m your death,” the woman is heard shouting in the video released online. “I hate democracy. I’m a terrorist.” She is heard shouting that she has been “cursed” and “destroyed” “so many times.” “I’m your suicide bomber… I’m going to die in a second…The end of the world…,” she shouted.
The woman appeared near Oktyabrskoye Pole metro station in northwest Moscow.
Russia’s Investigative Committee later released a statement that rescuers have found a body of a three or four-year-old child after extinguishing a fire in a Moscow apartment block. A preliminary investigation revealed that the suspect is a children’s nanny in her late 30s, who is a citizen of a “Central Asian country.”
The mother of the murdered child was taken to hospital in unconscious after she learned the news.
