Common Themes in Terrorist Acts

[Extract from the Secretary's interview on CTV's Power Play With Tom Clark]

"I think there is a connection among most of the terrorist activities that we're seeing around the world. They get encouragement from each other. They exchange training, explosives/information. I don't know the details of this particular one other than apparently they were women who were the suicide bombers, and we know that Moscow has had problems for a number of years now with Chechnya and other places within the Russian Federation, so there are connections. I don't think we want to go so far as to say they're all part of the same operation, but certainly there is a common theme to many of them."
