Evidence piles up that the two, near simultaneous air liner crashes on the 24th, were the result of terrorism. Traces of explosives were found in the wreckage of both aircraft, and in each aircraft, the body of a Chechen widow was found. It's a common practice among Chechen terrorists to recruit Chechen widows (of men killed fighting the Russians or pro-Russian Chechens) for these suicide missions. In Chechnya, there is a strong tradition of revenge attacks, and widows have a very hard life because of cultural practices. However, no credible Chechen or terrorist group has taken credit for the two aircraft crashes.
