The investigation detains four suspects in the case of twin attacks on Russian Muslim leaders in the Republic of Tatarstan. That’s according to the Investigative Committee spokesman Vladimir Markin.
On July 19, the Mufti of Tatarstan, Ildus Fayzov, got injured when his car was blown up as he left a radio station in the city of Kazan. The attempted murder was determined as a terror attack. On the same day, a former deputy mufti, Valiulla Yakupov, was shot dead near his home.
The president of the Republic of Tatarstan, Rustam Minnikhanov, ordered a $30,000 award for information to help solve the crime. Both Muslim leaders were known for fighting extremism, their professional activity is seen as one of the reasons for the attacks.
