We will recall that according to the Tajik Embassy in Moscow, at least three Tajik nationals were killed and one other was injured by two deadly explosions that hit the Moscow subway system on march 29.  The embassy says Umed Abdurahmonov, 24, from Khatlon’s Vakhsh district, Nodirbek Qarshiyev, 24, and Islomzhon Eshnazarov, 25, (both are from the city of Tursunzoda) were killed and Oryo Nazarov, 26, from Dushanbe was injured in the Moscow metro blasts. 

At least 39 people were killed and 73 others were injured by two explosions, which hit Moscow subway system on March 29 at the peak of the morning rush hour.  The first blast took place at the central Lubyanka station at about 07:56 am and the second explosion occurred about 30 minutes later at the Park Kultury station.  Russian law enforcement authorities said that two female suicide bombers linked to the North Caucasus region had blown themselves up on trains.  

There was a major attack on the Moscow Metro in February 2004, when at least 41 people were killed by a bomb on a packed train as it approached the Paveletskaya Metro station.  Six months later, a suicide bomber blew herself up outside a station, killing 10 people.
