Russia: Islamic State group 'prepared attacks' in Moscow

Russian security forces have arrested four men allegedly linked to the Islamic State (IS) terror organisation and suspected of planning a series of terror attacks on Moscow's transport system, authorities said on Thursday.

The FSB said those held included citizens of Russian Federation and ex-Soviet Central Asia who were "preparing terror attacks with the use of homemade explosives on Moscow's transport infrastructure". Some were Russian citizens and others, citizens of Central Asian countries. FSB officers during the searches found a laboratory for explosives production, a homemade bomb, explosive components, firearms, grenades, ammunition, literature and videos of terrorist and extremist nature.

After committing sabotage and terrorist attacks, the suspects planned to go to Syria to take part in the hostilities there, the FSB said.
