▶ Accused child killer blames Putin


A nanny accused of decapitati­ng a four-year-old girl and brandishin­g her head outside a Moscow subway station said during an apparent interrogat­ion captured on video that the killing was an act of revenge against President Vladimir Putin for Russian airstrikes in Syria. Asked about the video, which was released Thursday, Putin’s spokesman said it was difficult to judge the testimony of a woman he called “clearly deranged.” Gulchekhra Bobokulova, 38, was detained this week in Moscow after the child in her care was killed.
