An Islamist terrorist who plotted to organize suicide bombings on Moscow's iconic Red Square on New Year's eve has been sentenced to 15 years in jail. Ilyas Saidov brought explosives-laden belts disguised as electric heaters for two female suicide bombers who planned to blow themselves on Dec. 31, 2010. But the belt attached to a cell phone exploded at a rented apartment because of a spam text message, killing one of the women and prompting the arrest of the other one. (AP Photo/Misha Japaridze)
