MOSCOW, October 20 /TASS/. The Russian Federal Security Service (FSB) and the Russian Interior Ministry detained 22 members of the Hizb ut-Tahrir al-Islami (the Islamic Party of Liberation) international terrorist organization, including its leaders, on Tuesday, a source at the FSB Public Relations Center, told TASS.
The Russian Supreme Court banned the organization, which had acted deeply in clandestine, in Russia on February 14, 2003.
"The FSB and the Russian Interior Ministry carried out a joint operation in the territory of the Moscow region on October 19 to stop the illegal activities of a top secret underground international terrorist organization Hizb ut-Tahrir al-Islami (the Islamic Party of Liberation)," the Federal Security Service (FSB) said adding that the Hizb ut-Tahrir leaders were natives of the Central Asian region who had recruited Russian nationals to the organization.
The terrorists used increased measures of conspiracy and counteraction to law enforcers.
"For the moment, the FSB investigative bodies have detained 22 members of the aforesaid terrorist organization, including its leaders, under previously initiated criminal proceedings," FSB said.
FSB has made over 25 raids on the terrorists’ dens confiscating extremist literature, communication means and electronic reports on the organization’s work.
