MOSCOW, October 28. /TASS/. The police in the Moscow Region have detained two members of an international religious and extremist group, Russian Interior Ministry spokesperson Elena Alexeyeva told TASS.
She noted that two natives of Tajikistan, previously convicted, had been detained on suspicion of robbery and looting in Moscow and the Moscow region after a police department in the town of Schyolkovo received a message from a man saying that unknown persons threatening him with a gun stole his car and cash. The total material damage amounted to about 1,5 million rubles (more than $23,000).
"According to the available data, the detainees are supporters of the ideology of the international extremist group At-Takfir wal-Hijra, which encourages use of violence against non-Muslims and co-religionists who do not share the organization’s radical views," Elena Alexeyeva said. According to her, the group’s members were engaged in active propaganda work among the population trying to persuade citizens to take part in Jihad on the side of terrorist groups.
