Three weeks ago, two female suicide bombers attacked metro stations in Moscow killing at least 40 people.

Russian investigators have linked the women, both from the Dagestan region in the North Caucasus, to separatist fighters.

The parents of Maryam Sharipova, one of the alleged bombers, told Al Jazeera they were shocked and confused to learn of their daughter's actions.
