An Uzbek woman who was filmed waving the severed head of a young girl outside of a Moscow metro station on February 29 has been formally charged with murder in the case.
A spokesman for Russia’s Investigative Committee, Vladimir Markin, confirmed on March 4 that the charges have been filed against Gyulchekhra Bobokulova – an Uzbek citizen who had been hired to care for the four-year-old Russian girl.
Bobokulova told reporters on March 2 that "Allah ordered" her to carry out the grisly killing of a four-year-old Russian girl that she had been hired to babysit.
In a video of an apparent police interrogation that was posted online, Bobokulova said she acted to avenge Muslims who have been killed by Russian air strikes in Syria.
