Moscow police detain 15 Islamists with suicide belts


Moscow, - The police have detained members of the At Takfir wal-Hijra extremist organization in Moscow and seized plenty of armaments and explosives.

"Fourteen members of the At Takfir wal-Hijra radical religious extremist organization were detained in the Moscow eastern district in the early morning hours of November 27 in the course of an inquiry into felonies," the source said.

"The search of the residences of the organization members yielded three homemade bombs with detonators and shrapnel elements, one of them made to be fastened with a belt, bomb parts, including detonators and fuses, handguns, grenades, cartridges and extremist literature," the ministry's representative said.

"The funds gained by the perpetration of felonies financially supported the organization," he stressed.

A criminal case is pending. Illegal arms turnover will be one of the charges.

It was reported on November 5 that a 31-year-old man born in Ukraine and naturalized in Russia was detained in Balashikha, Moscow region, on suspicion of recruiting young women. He was a member of the At Takfir wal-Hijra extremist group.

The Russian Supreme Court pronounced that At Takfir wal-Hijra was an extremist organization and banned its operations in Russia in September 2010. The court said that the organization was inciting interethnic and interreligious enmity.

At Takfir wal-Hijra (Excommunication and Exodus) is an international radical Islamist terrorist organization established in Egypt in the early 1970s by Shukri Mustafa. It was outlawed by the Egyptian authorities in 1977.
