MOSCOW, February 20. /TASS/. Another accessory to terrorists behind a series of grave crime, including a terrorist attack in Moscow’s Domodedovo airport in January 2011, has been put on an international wanted list, a well-informed source in Russian law enforcement agencies told TASS on Saturday.

"A 35-year-old man, native of Vladikavkaz [North Caucasian republic of North Ossetia (Alania)], has been put on an international wanted list. He was previously sought by police for other crimes. It turned out that he took part in the organization of a terrorist attack in the Domodedovo airport as a member of Riyadh-us-Saliheen gang, which was a member of the terrorist group Imarat Kavkaz, also known as Caucasus Emirate," the source said.

The man, according to the source, did not take part in activating the explosive device. He was in charge of organizing weapons and munitions procurements for the gang and conducting intelligence activities.

The terrorist attack at Moscow’s Domodedovo international airport was committed in January 2011. A suicide bomber entered the airport’s arrivals area and detonated a bomb hidden under his coat. The blast killed 37 and injured 172.

The Moscow City Court On November 24, 2014 convicted brothers Islam and Ilez Yandiyev, Akhmed Yevloyev and Bashir Khamkhoyev for complicity in the terror act. According to the prosecutors, they helped a suicide bomber to get from Ingushetia in North Caucasus to Moscow where they took an apartment on rent, gave him a suicide bomber’s vest and chose the place of the terror attack by sending him to the airport in a taxi car.

Meanwhile, Moscow’s Basmanny Court has sentenced the terrorists’ accomplice, Ibragim Torshkhoyev, to three years in colony after a plea deal.
