A woman tries to detonate a bomb at a restaurant in Moscow

Description

This is a story of home grown terrorists targeting the area around the Kremlin in Moscow. Late night, a young woman had tried to enter a restaurant on a central Moscow street. Something about her behavior seems suspicious to the security guards. When they try to check her backpack, she throws it down and tries to flee. A chase ensues and she's soon caught. Afterwards a bomb squad technician carefully begins to examine the remains of the bomb. Horrifyingly, seconds later, the bomb goes off. The technicians protective suit fails to save him, and 29-year-old Major Georgy Trofimov dies on the spot. Ironically, it was the same Major Trofimov, who, only a week before, had successfully defused another bomb at a popular Moscow music festival.
