The 2003 Tushino bombing took place July 5, 2003 in Tushino airfield, Russia.

According to the official version, 20-year-old Chechen woman Zulikhan Elikhadzhiyeva[1] blew herself up outside a rock festival called "Krylya" (Wings) (ru:Крылья (фестиваль)) at the Tushino airfield near Moscow; her bomb did not detonate as expected. 15 minutes later, only a few meters from where Zulikhan blew herself up, 26-six-year-old Zinaida Aliyeva detonated her explosives. The attack killed 11 people on the spot, while at least 60 people were injured and four of them later died in hospital.[2]
