Uzbek Woman Says in Court ‘Allah Ordered’ Her to Sever Child’s Head

MOSCOW (Reuters) – An Uzbek woman accused of murdering a child in her care and brandishing the child’s severed head outside a metro station, said on Wednesday in a Moscow court that “Allah ordered” her to carry out the act.

Gulchekhra Bobokulova, a 38-year-old mother of three sons, made the comment to reporters on the way into the courtroom. She also replied “yes” when asked if she accepted her guilt.

On Monday, police wrestled Bobokulova to the ground as she was displaying the severed head of a child outside a Moscow metro station, in an incident that stirred fears of an Islamist terrorist attack.

An investigator speaking in the court said that to date no one else had been found who was involved in the crime. Russian officials have said Bobokulova was suffering from mental health problems.
