Russian court issues arrest warrant for suspected accomplices of Domodedovo bomber

A court in the southern Russia city of Vladikavkaz has issued an arrest warrant for two suspected accomplices of a deadly blast at Moscow’s Domodedovo Airport in January.

The suspects, brothers Islam and Ilez Yandiyev, were detained on Monday in the volatile North Caucasus republic of Ingushetia.

According to investigators, the brothers met suicide bomber Magomed Yevloyev, 20, in Moscow on his arrival from Ingushetia and accompanied him to the airport on January 24, where he detonated a bomb that killed 37 people.

Before their detention, the brothers were hiding in Ingushetia, where they are believed to have been preparing another terrorist attack.

Yevloyev’s younger brother and sister were arrested shortly after the attack after detectives found traces of explosives on their hands. A Moscow court source said Ahmed and Fatima Yevloyev’s arrest was extended on Tuesday by two months.
