MOSCOW, October 16 (Itar-Tass) — The Federal Security Service in the Sverdlovsk region, Russia’s Urals, have taken into custody three members of the extremist group Turkestan Islamic Party plotting terrorist acts on the country’s territory, the press service of the prosecutor-general’s office in the Urals Federal District said on Wednesday.
“In March 2011, a resident of the Sverdlovsk region became a member of the Turkestan Islamic Party and underwent training as a recruiter and suicide bomber in one of the Asian countries,” the source said. “Through the Internet, he got acquainted with other two persons, who became his accomplices. He trained them how to use small arms, explosive agents and devices.”
In September, a criminal case was instituted on charges of recruiting terrorists and drawing people into terrorist activity. The prosecutor-general’s office in the Urals Federal District had taken an investigation under its control.
Police found small arms, munitions, explosives and drugs at the place of the detainees’ residence in the Sverdlovsk region.
The investigation is underway.
