Mother claims terrorism to stall daughter's marriage

By Washington Post Editors

A Russian mother told authorities her daughter was a suicide bomber to stop her from flying to wed a Moroccan man, according to this report:

Meanwhile, police traced the fraudulent call to the city of Yaroslavl, where the 56-year-old mother was arrested at home and charged as a "telephone terrorist," according to Itar-Tass.
"Her daughter recently fell in love with a Moroccan citizen and was planning to get married to him and move to Morocco," a police spokesman told RIA Novisti news agency, before concluding with the understatement of the year: "The woman was against the marriage and did not want her daughter to leave the country."
