The statement, said to be from a group calling itself the Islambouli Brigades, described the attack as "part of the wave of support and assistance to the Muslim Chechens".This is the same group that has claimed responsibility for downing two Russian airliners a week ago. The people like the Islambouli Brigades are free to think what they like, but, personally, I don't believe there is any justification for such terrorist attacks, and I think it is them who live in "the state of heresy".
The statement, posted on a website used by militants in the past, said the attack would be "followed, with God's help, by more waves until we humiliate the state of heresy called Russia".
