YEKATERINBURG, November 9. /TASS/. A Tajik national, member of the hardline Islamic Taliban movement, was detained in Russia’s Yekaterinburg (south Urals), a representative of the local police Valery Gorelykh said on Monday.
"In his country, Asliddin Nurov is suspected of participating in illegal military groups, and since 2010 he has been fighting on Taliban’s side at the border between Afghanistan and Pakistan," he said.
The police say the man had come to Yekaterinburg to shelter from investigators there.
"He was planning to lie low in a rented flat, where the police found him," the police representative said. "As the police searched the flat, they found about a dozen books in foreign languages, and the security service are analyzing them now."
The detainee studied Islam in Iran between 2005 and 2008.
The man remains behind bars now, and the extradition procedures are under way.
The detention was organized by Interpol and Russian security services.
