[Ed. – The headlines are calling her a “burka-clad nanny,” but she’s not wearing a burka. She has on a hijab (headscarf) and a black outer gown like an Iranian chador. She’s from Uzbekistan, apparently, so a chador is what I’d call it. At any rate, she’s suspected of cutting off her 4-year-old charge’s head and burning the family apartment, after which she walked around with the head shouting “Allahu Akbar!” The salient point is that she’s a Muslim.]
Horrific new details of how a nanny beheaded a four-year-old girl and paraded through the streets of Moscow with her severed head have been revealed.
The woman, dressed in a burka, threatened to blow herself up as she walked near Oktyabrskoye Pole metro station holding up the little girl’s head.
Investigators claim she murdered the girl, who is believed to have learning difficulties, after starting a fire at the child’s family home in a block of flats.
The nanny, Gyulchehra Bobokulova, 38, from Uzbekistan, has been arrested.
It is now known that the beheaded remains of the girl, identified as Anastasia (Nastya) Meshcheryakova, were discovered inside her cot. Her body had been dressed in her night clothes, consisting of a T-shirt and shorts.
According to local media, Bobokulova shouted in the street: ‘I hate democracy. I am a terrorist. I want you dead.’
