Russian policeman arrested for plane bombings

Russian officials arrested police captain Mikhail Artamonov on Wednesday in connection with the investigation surrounding the country's pair of plane bombings last month. Authorities had already arrested an airline ticket scalper and an airline employee who they believe aided two Chechen women in carrying bombs on board the planes.

Under Russian terror laws, Captain Artamonov may be held up to 30 days without formal charges. From Moscow, MosNews.com has more on the latest arrest in English.
