The suspect in terrorism received instructions from Syrian militants.
In Nalchik, the FSB and MIA officers detained a member of the Islamic State terrorist group (banned in the Russian Federation), who was preparing an attack being instructed by Syrian militants. Earlier, the suspect was in the “Baksan gang”, which nine years ago organized a sabotage at the Baksan hydropower plant, the Public Relations Center of the FSB said.
The security officers conducted a search in the detainee’s house and seized an improvised explosive device, extremist literature and other evidence indicating his guilt. The investigating bodies initiated a criminal case on the fact of preparation for the commission of a terrorist act.
