Russia Arrests 15 Muslim Terrorists

Moscow police have arrested 15 members of Takfir Wal-Hijra, an extremist organization. The cell had a stash of weapons and explosives, which was seized in the police raid. The cell was exposed and busted thanks to ongoing investigations into crimes not related to terrorism, the Interior Ministry reported. Members of the group were involved in various acts of crime to fund their activity. Fourteen radicals were arrested overnight in the east of the city, while another was apprehended hours later at a different location. Police seized three improvised explosive devices complete with detonators. One of the bombs was designed to be belt-stripped. Among other items discovered were bomb components, handguns, grenades, ammo and extremist literature, the ministry statement said. Read more at
